Testing for the assumption of independence between spatial variables is an important first step in spatial conometrics. Usually the researchers use the bivariate generalization of the Moran’s statistic, specifying a spatial matrix a priori. This test is applicable only to detect linear relations in pairs of variables, which must be spatially non-autocorrelated. We develop a new non-parametric test, based on symbolic dynamics, that is free of these shortcomings. The test is consistent, computationally simple to obtain and powerful as shown in our Monte Carlo experiment.
