PORTAIL D'INFORMATION GÉOGRAPHIQUE

On the characterization of urban social areas

Auteur :
JOHNSTON, R. J.

Description :
Geographers have made great use of the factorial ecology method in recent years. The method is subject to three major technical criticisms, however, concerned with autocorrelation, closed number sets, and standardisation. To circumvent these criticisms two alternative methods are presented multi-dimensional scaling and classification based on information theory measures: they are illustrated with reference to the Borough of Thamesdown. (AGD).
