Thus, we propose the following neighbor effect hypothesis as follows:
Neighbor Effect Hypothesis: The likelihood of self-insurance is positively related to the self--insurance behavior of nearby households (as proxied by area participation rates in the MSFH program).
Last but not least, in Model 4, we also incorporate three spatial effect variables and our empirical results show that the neighbor effect variable [WU1.sub.i,t] is significantly positive at the 1% confidence interval, while the spillover effect variable [WU2.sub.i,t] is significantly positive at the 5% confidence interval, which undoubtedly confirms that the spatial effects do exist in the Chinese regional labor market.
