A Bibliography of Statistical Applications in Geography, Technical Paper No. 9.
Greer-Wootten, Bryn; And Others
Included in this bibliography are resource materials available to both college instructors and students on statistical applications in geographic research. Two stages of statistical development are treated in the bibliography. They are 1) descriptive statistics, in which the sample is the focus of interest, and 2) analytical statistics, in which the population is the primary interest. For each of the sections, a short introductory statement is made concerning the general nature of problems investigated using that technique, where applicable. The bibliography treats 34 categories of geographic statistical concepts, such as measurement, set theory, geographic data, geography matrix, computer applications, sample designs and methods, descriptive statistics, index construction, analysis of variance, geostatistics, point pattern analysis, among others. Not included in the bibliography are references to sample space, expected values, random variables, population and sampling distributions. Entries are listed alphabetically by author, and include the title, source, number of pages, date, and place of publication. (Author/JR)
