This is a study on the potential market for an ethnic grocery store in Halifax NS. It is not a full evaluation as it only considers 3 variables. Each variable was broken into 5 groupings and assigned a weight. The variable weight values were added up for each sample zone and a weighted suitability was […]
The purpose of this portfolio piece was to consider 6 variables from European Countries that are present on the World Bank Data webpage and group them using different methods including : No spatial constraints, continuity edges corners, delauney triangulation, k nearest neighbours and spatial weights.
This was an exercise in stepping through the different stages of regressions in order to determine which datasets were statistically the best to model a chosen variable (in this case food). This process included exploratory regression, OLS regression and geographically weighted regression. The results from each step was used in the next. Model fit, residuals […]
The goal of this project was to use the concentric rings method to analyze the trade area around a selected business (in this case ethnic grocery store). Proportional Sums and Averages were calculated to determine demographics and income etc in the first concentric ring.
