Bhuiyan Alam, University of Toledo "Without the Mc Grew text my course wouldn't be a 'geographic statistics' course.
I love the book and my students do too." Paul Sutton, University of Denver Part I: BASIC STATISTICAL CONCEPTS IN GEOGRAPHY 1.
An epilogue offers over 150 geographic situations, inviting students to apply their new statistical skills to solve problems currently affecting our world.
Data sets for many of the book's examples, appropriate for use with a variety of statistical and GIS software can be downloaded here.

Geographic Data: Characteristics and Preparation Selected Dimensions of Geographic Data / Levels of Measurement / Measurement Concepts / Basic Classification Methods Part II: DESCRIPTIVE PROBLEM SOLVING IN GEOGRAPHY 3.The Pennsylvania Geographer Social science statistics oftentimes is not focused on geography as a unique discipline with its own set of problems and applications.This text provides both the theory and application of statistics for undergraduate students in geography.Basics of Probability and Discrete Probability Distributions Basic Probability Processes, Terms, and Concepts / The Binomial Distribution / The Geometric Distribution / The Poisson Distribution 6.Continuous Probability Distributions and Probability Mapping The Normal Distribution / Probability Mapping 7.Correlation The Nature of Correlation / Association of Interval-Ratio Variables / Association of Ordinal Variables 17.Simple Linear Regression Form of Relationship in Simple Linear Regression / Strength of Relationship in Simple Linear Regression / Residual or Error Analysis in Simple Linear Regression / Inferential Use of Regression / Example: Simple Linear Regression Lake Effect Snow in Northeastern Ohio 18.Descriptive Statistics and Graphics Measures of Central Tendency / Measures of Dispersion and Variability / Measures of Shape or Relative Position / Selected Issues: Spatial Data and Descriptive Statistics 4.Descriptive Spatial Statistics Spatial Measures of Central Tendency / Spatial Measures of Dispersio Part III: THE TRANSITION TO INFERENTIAL PROBLEM SOLVING 5.I have thoroughly studied and tried out a number of textbooks for the third-year course, Statistical Methods for Geographers, and was disappointed.In many cases I found the explanations to be weak, often irrelevant, and confusing.
