Product Description


"It has been difficult to find a good introductory statistics text that can be used with a class consisting of both physical and social science students. This textbook meets that demand by incorporating a good number of examples from both aspects of the discipline and including thorough discussions of introductory spatial statistics....Should prove useful as both a classroom textbook and a basic statistical reference."/m-/David R. Legates, University of Oklahoma

"Burt and Barber have extended and modernized a text that has long served geography students as a methodological foundation....This text will find its place in upper-level undergraduate courses and first-year graduate study for those with limited statistics backgrounds."/m-/Randall W. Jackson, Ohio State University

"The text is very well organized and contains a wealth of excellent examples and diagrams. Chapters on time-series and computer-intensive methods are particularly valuable."/m-/Scott Robeson, Indiana University

Although this book does cover statistics for geographers fairly well, the third edition is somewhat easier to read and use.

HASH(0x9ba4581c) out of 5 stars Rock solid book Oct. 25 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Coming from UW Madison, what else could you expect. This book is used in at least several major departments nationwide, and should be on every geographer's shelf.
