Review:

At a time where spatial quantitative methods (again) are of increasing importance to all concerned with geographical analysis, Rogerson's book is a nicely structured, well explained and up-to-date introduction to and survey of statistical methods in geography and the reasoning behind the techniques.--Martin Henning

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. --Stewart Fotheringham

In this 4th edition of what is now becoming a classic text, Professor Rogerson provides us with the most up-to-date and comprehensive treatment of basic statistics for geographers. He does so in a very user friendly manner with informative, real-world data sets that bring the statistics to life. This is a book I will certainly use for teaching undergraduate statistics and recommend it very highly. A really useful text for which the author is to be congratulated.

--Martin Henning

Statistics has become critically important in contemporary geographical analysis. Statistical literacy is one of the graduate attributes with which universities prepare their geography students. Statistical Methods for Geography - A Student's Guide by Peter A. Rogerson provides a fundamental and accessible statistics textbook tailored for geography with well-designed illustrations and exercises. It is suitable for students of geography at all levels.

--Xuan Zhu

In its previous editions, this book provided an outstanding introduction to statistics for geographers or anyone working with geographical data. The explanations of techniques and the examples and practical exercises are all excellent. This latest edition now incorporates material on a number of new topics such as statistical power and ways of measuring distance, and also includes new and timely example datasets from a variety of geographical locations. Its unique breadth of coverage of statistical ideas and examples make this an excellent choice as a key text for teaching quantitative techniques. I have no hesitation in recommending this book.

--Chris Brunsdon

This book remains the best available guide for any student seeking to use statistical methods to answer the question, 'where?'. It provides a lucid, comprehensive and practical introduction that will be used widely across geography, and other social and environmental sciences.
