  1. a Optimal span obtained by using the Akaike's Information Criterion (AIC) unless otherwise noted.
  2. b Same span as for adjusted, all residences.
  3. c Null hypothesis is that the map is flat. S-Plus p-value is only approximate.
  4. d The p-values were omitted because the maps were created using a non-optimal span.
