About the Author:

I am Professor of Geography and Biostatistics at the University at Buffalo. My research interests are in the area of demography and population change, epidemiology, spatial statistics, and spatial analysis. My current work is focused upon the development of new methods for the quick detection of newly emergent clusters in geographic data (for example, how does one determine as quickly as possible whether there is a new cluster of crime or disease?).

Review:

This book provides students with everything they need to know in both a basic statistics course and also in introductory courses focused on spatial data analysis. It is extremely well-written, well-organised and has plenty of easily understood examples - really the ideal textbook. I recommend it extremely highly

It should be stated on the outset: this is an excellent textbook recommended for

all geographers, students and teachers alike. The book excels in many aspects: its

content is rich and well balanced, its clarity is superb, and it is replete with examples

and exercises. The book is user-friendly to students who are interested in understanding the application of statistical tests and in properly interpreting the results, rather than in delving in the mathematics involved.
