Hello out there, hopefully some of you have recovered from the UC and are still checking out the forums.


I am trying to wrap my head around the spatial statistics toolbox, and was attempting to do some exploratory regression work today on an archaeological data set....when I realized the data I want to look into further is all categorical or binary.  From what I can tell regression is not the way to go about this for this type of data.  Is this correct?  Am I essentially now restricted to cluster or point patterns?  I don't believe I can even use Global Moran's I ... however I'm have about 9 weeks of beating my head against my desk when it comes to spatial stats.  So that could be wrong.  Any pushes towards reading material or toolboxes geared more towards categorical and/or binary would be much appreciated.
