- This paper examines spatial dependence in Chinas regional innovation using the spatial econometric approach. Dataset covers 30 Chinese provinces for the period from 2000 to 2009. The main findings are as follows: First, an interdependent and simultaneous influential relation in regional innovation is observed in most of the spatial panel models. Second, R&D activity significantly affects regional innovation. The effect of entrepreneurial activity on innovation is generally lower than that of R&D. In addition, the indirect spillover effect of R&D activity and entrepreneurial activity among adjacent provinces is limited. Third, the spillover effect of R&D and entrepreneurial activity among provinces diminishes with distance based on the regression analysis that formulated spatial weight matrixes for three different range segments. That is, the spillover effect of entrepreneurial activity is limited by spatial proximity, and the spillover effect of R&D activity is attenuated by the increase in distance.
