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.

"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
