10) Cliff and Ord (1972) derived the sampling distribution of the I statistic under two different hypotheses: (i) randomization and (ii) normality of residuals. In the first case the sampling distribution is obtained by considering all possible permutations of the observed data on the boundary system and calculating the Moran I statistic in each of them. 11) Some Important Spatial Definitions 35 with S0 = ∑i ∑ j wij, M x = I − Px and Px = X( X T X )−1 X T .
