Just wondering if anyone could list all the statistics that you need for AH geography - as we are self teaching and this would probably be useful

cheers for any help.

I used to go to Strathclyde University to do MEng Chemical Engineering, but I hated the course, so I quit. I've started doing MSc Mathematics, from September 2006, as I have a keen (almost unhealthy) interest in Mathematics, and its applications.<br /><br />The grades I achieved in the exams:<br /><br />1 - Standard Grade Mathematics<br />1 - Standard Grade Physics<br />1 - Standard Grade Chemistry<br />1 - Standard Grade Computing Studies<br />1 - Standard Grade Craft and Design<br />2 - Standard Grade English<br />2 - Standard Grade Geography <br /><br />A (Band 1) - Higher English<br />A (Band 1) - Higher Mathematics<br />A (Band 2) - Higher Chemistry<br />B (Band 3) - Higher Physics<br /><br />Anything else ya wanna know about me, PM me or add me to your MSN contact list and chat to me there. :P

It'd help if you posted this in the AH Geog forum, and didn't post it four times...blink.gif

Aye sorry about that! me and my pal are self teaching so we decided to post this on here. we had thought that we were in the AH Geog part but actually weren't when we posted first time round! so when we checked the AH Geography bit our post obviously wasn't there. So we pressed the back button and repeated this 4 times before giving up! Ony afterwards i'd realised what we'd done!

Off the top of my head:

Spearman's Rank Correlation Coefficent
Pearson's Product Moment Correlation
Chi-Square Test
Nearest Neighbour Index
Gravity Model

These are only the ones I can remember coming across in class and I think there are a few more that are talked about (didn't need to learn them for the exam though).

Best advice I can give you is to get your hands on this: Methods of Statistical Analysis of Fieldwork Data (also consider getting Methods of Presenting Fieldwork Data ). I found these to be invaluable sources of information and help for completing the Geographical Study and the course in general.

I've got a list of all the stats and fieldwork that might come up, at home - I'll post it up later if thats any help.

Wake, melancholy Mother, wake and weep!
Yet wherefore? Quench within their burning bed
Thy fiery tears, and let thy loud heart keep,
Like his, a mute and uncomplaining sleep;

Some general points about statistical significance:

- Statistical significance does not help to interpret the nature or help to explain the relationship.
- It does denote the degree of confidence you may hold that relationship between variables described in your results is systematic in the larger population and not attributable to random error.
- It does not ensure that the relationship is theoretically or practically important or indicate the strength of the relationship.
