I have a shapefile with points distributed in a polygon. The points are post office locations within a census district. How can I estimate if the post office is a representation of the concentration of population in this area recently settled (1870-1890)? Can I do any geo-statistic? Regression? Txs
There is a tutorial here Spatial analysis tutorial that shows you how to perform a similar task to that which I think you are trying to do.
I hope this is useful.
