    Abstract

    After the recent death of Peter Gould, I decided to look once again at his insightful paper `Is Statistix Inferens the Geographical Name for a Wild Goose?' (Gould 1970) - hence the title for this guest editorial. For those readers who have not seen this article, Gould outlines a number of shortcomings of the common statistical practices of geographers of the day.
