André-Michel Guerry's Moral Statistics of France:
Challenges for Multivariate Spatial Analysis

These pages were initially created in connection with my paper, A. M. Guerry's Moral Statistics of France: Challenges for Multivariate Spatial Analysis, Statistical Science, 2007, 22(3), 368-399, where I review Guerry's life and works, and invite others to show what modern methods of statistics and statistical graphics can reveal about the problems and questions that Guerry raised.

Resources

The pages below provide background information and access to the Guerry's data and the map of France in 1830.
