How do the spatial distributions of environmental variables versus economic variables differ in the United States? This exercise examines economic and environmental indicators by state to determine whether there is evidence of spatial clustering of economic development using environmental assessment variables. Principal component analysis (PCA) is used to identify and remove redundancy (through correlation) in the data. The results of the PCA are then imported into ArcGIS software to interpret them. Keywords: environmental variables, economic variables, principal component analysis; Moran's I, local cluster analysis, SpatiaLAB
