1 5-7 October 2009EFGS Workshop, The Hague, Netherlands1 Geo-statistics and Scales Mathieu Vliegen

2 Outline Referencing statistical output and scales in small area statistics Referencing statistical output and scales in small area statistics Comparison of scales: differentiation analysis Comparison of scales: differentiation analysis Results of analysis for the 3 biggest cities in the Netherlands Results of analysis for the 3 biggest cities in the Netherlands What does the analysis tell us? What does the analysis tell us? 5-7 October 2009EFGS Workshop, The Hague, Netherlands2

3 Referencing and scales Referencing Regional Spatial Geometrical Scales Postal areas Sub-city areas Grid squares 5-7 October 2009EFGS Workshop, The Hague, Netherlands3

4 Differentiation analysis Range analysis: difference between highest and lowest scale value Range analysis: difference between highest and lowest scale value Homogeneity analysis: variation coefficient = standardized standard deviation of the scale value distribution (standard deviation / value of the relevant territorial unit ) Homogeneity analysis: variation coefficient = standardized standard deviation of the scale value distribution (standard deviation / value of the relevant territorial unit ) 5-7 October 2009EFGS Workshop, The Hague, Netherlands4

5 Scales used in the analysis Postal areas Postal areas Sub-city areas Sub-city areas Grid squares Grid squares 4-digit (e.gr. 2203) 5-digit (e.gr. 2203H) Districts Neighbourhoods 500 x 500 m 100 x 100 m 5-7 October 2009EFGS Workshop, The Hague, Netherlands5

6 Variables analysed Population aged 65 and over (%) Population aged 65 and over (%) Population with non-western foreign background (%) Population with non-western foreign background (%) One-person household (%) One-person household (%) Private housing (% dwellings) Private housing (% dwellings) Average ratable value dwellings Average ratable value dwellings 5-7 October 2009EFGS Workshop, The Hague, Netherlands6

15 What does the analysis tell us? Awareness of the implications of the areal scale with respect to the statistics produced at that scale (how to lie with statistics?) Awareness of the implications of the areal scale with respect to the statistics produced at that scale (how to lie with statistics?) Definition as detailed as possible of the area scale used in order to protect users for possible pitfalls using the statistics in question Definition as detailed as possible of the area scale used in order to protect users for possible pitfalls using the statistics in question 5-7 October 2009EFGS Workshop, The Hague, Netherlands15
