Contents Notes
Analyzing public health data -- Spatial data -- Visualizing spatial data -- Analysis of spatial point patterns -- Spatial clusters of health events : point data for cases and controls -- Spatial clustering of health events : regional count data -- Spatial exposure data -- Linking spatial exposure data to health events. Sparked by the growing interest in statistical methods for the analysis of spatially referenced data in the field of public health, this book fills the need for an introductory, application-oriented text on this timely subject. Written for practicing public health researchers as well as graduate students in related fields, the text provides a thorough introduction to basic concepts and methods in applied spatial statistics as well as a detailed treatment of some of the more recent methods in spatial statistics useful for public health studies that have not been previously covered elsewhere.
