Thanks to Kit Baum, a -spautoc- package on SSC has been 

-spautoc- calculates spatial autocorrelation, specifically Moran  
and Geary measures, given a spatial variable and neighbourhood
information. Optionally numeric weights may be specified
reflecting e.g. distance between locations. The package contains,
as well as the main command -spautoc-, utilities -dupneigh-, 
-neigh- and -numids- to help setting up neighbourhood and 
weight information in the required way.

These programs all require Stata 8. 

The earlier versions for Stata 5 (!) are also included: 
all such files have suffix 5 to the main part of the

Oddly enough, I have not yet looked in detail at Maurizio's 
programs. My programs did what I wanted them to do when I first
wrote them in 1997, and as I use them in teaching and get 
occasional queries about them I decided to refresh the package.
