Book Description

Dec 29 1995 0898622824 978-0898622829 Second Edition
Statistics courses frequently gloss over the foundations of statistical analysis and concentrate solely on method. As a result, students are able to perform the techniques, but do not know when to utilize them or how to interpret results incorporating statistical methods. Designed to give geography students a solid understanding of key statistical concepts, this in-depth text both presents basic techniques and fully explores their meaning and importance. Structured for optimal classroom use, the book includes helpful student exercises with answer keys. Four broad sections provide comprehensive coverage of descriptive statistics, inferential statistics, statistical relationships between two variables, and modern methods of analysis.

Product Details

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rock solid book Oct. 25 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
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.
