Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

8 Scopus citations


This paper considers what happens when we abandon the concept that models of social processes have global application in favor of a local approach in which context or the influence of ‘place’ has an important role. A brief history of this local approach to statistical modeling is given, followed by a consideration of its ramifications for understanding societal issues. The piece concludes with future challenges and prospects in this area.
