Abstract

Quantitative ecological analysis in human geography involves statistical analysis of spatially aggregated data on individuals. Unfortunately, there have been and continue to be many examples of the misuse and abuse of these procedures. Seeks to clarify these issues with regard to the use of percentage and proportioned data, the areal unit problem, spatial autocorrelation and ecological inference.-from Editors Dept Geog, Univ Sheffield, Sheffield, S10 2TN, UK.
