Statistical models for point-counting data

Pieter Vermeesch
2018 Earth and Planetary Science Letters  
4 Point-counting data are a mainstay of petrography, micropalaeontology and palynology. Conventional 5 statistical analysis of such data is fraught with problems.  ...  Commonly used statistics such as the arithmetic 6 mean and standard deviation may produce nonsensical results when applied to point-counting data.  ...  Gert-Jan Weltje and an anonymous reviewer are 385 thanked for their constructive comments on the submitted manuscript.  ...
