This week’s assignment is to explore the distributional characteristics of a subset of attributes measured using the Detroit Census tract database. You will perform several tasks. First, you will calculate several descriptive statistics using functions within EXCEL (e.g., mean, median, standard deviation, CV). Second, you will graphically summarize the selected attributes by creating histograms and boxplots using GeoDa. Your overall objective is to use these quantitative measures and graphical displays along with the linking and brushing features within GeoDa to summarize the main characteristics of each selected variable. In other words, how would you describe these selected attributes and their associated spatial patterns. There is no central question – this is an exploratory analysis.
