 Abstract: In many applications we have to encountered with bounded dependent variables. Beta regression model can be used to deal with these kinds of response variables. In this paper we aim to study spatially correlated responses in the unit interval. Initially we introduce spatial beta generalized linear mixed model in which the spatial correlation is captured through a random effect. Then the performances of the proposed model is evaluated via a simulation study, implementing Bayesian approach for parameter estimation. Finally the application of this model on two real data sets about migration rate and divorce rate in Iran are presented.

Keywords: Bayesian estimation, beta regression model, spatial correlation, random effect.
