Spatial statistics are primarily concerned with geographical spatial data containing location data. Non-spatial statistics can contain any data, not necessarily spatial.

Spatial statistics define a location. They are in the form of graphic primitives that are

usually either points, lines, polygons or pixels.

Non spatial statistics are numbers, characters or logical type.

spatial statistic is toolbox with the statistical tools to analyse the spatial distributions and non spatial are the ones incorporating space, connectivity,area and spatial relationship directly into their mathematics.

Spatial data sets are primarily defined as those which are directly or indirectly referenced to a location on the surface of the earth. when data sets cannot be related to location on the surface of the earth is referred as non spatial data.

Non-spatial statistics are used to analyse attribute values associated with features, these values can be found on the attribute table of the source layer feature. Spatial statistics answers questions and proves hypotheses for effective decision making by measuring properties and relationships of data taking into consideration the spatial location of the subject of the study, the attributes and the relationship of features of the spatial data.
