Popul Res Policy Rev (2007) 26:455–456 DOI 10.1007/s11113-007-9048-3 Introduction to the Special Issue on Spatial Demography Paul R. Voss Published online: 6 September 2007 Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2007 This issue of PRPR, and the issue to follow, brings together a number of articles of interest to demographers that explore in one way or another some of the approaches to data analysis when the data are linked to location. The analysis of data for areal units (units generally drawn from a geographic hierarchy of areas common to national censuses) brings with it a number of problems. Attributes of spatially referenced data generally violate some of the critical assumptions underlying classical statistical measures and models, a dilemma that necessitates both caution regarding these violations and attention to methods designed to correct for them. These problems have been understood for several decades by quantitative geographers (most notably in the UK) and regional scientists (predominantly on the European continent), but demographers have been slow bring these method- ologies into their own toolkits. Concerns over the special problems associated with the statistical analysis of areal data have prompted a number of special issues devoted to spatial analysis across a wide spectrum of disciplines
