This book is a guide to elementary and multivariate statistics and aims to cover the undergraduate geographers' needs in statistical methods from their first to final year. The authors have kept in mind the needs of the non-science trained geographers by avoiding difficult mathematics and have made use of worked examples and exercises to reinforce points made in the text. The arrangement of material extends from simple to multivariate statistics, as well as including items on elementary maths used in the text and a discussion of data sources in geography. Increasingly geographers need to understand multivariate methods and the use of computers in order to process the frequently large amounts of data, and to execute statistical procedures. Reference is made in this book to computer applications and the final chapter lists some available programs.
