Statistical Analysis of Epidemiologic Data

Oxford University Press

Spatial distributions have played a major role in the epidemiology of several diseases and are essential for the analysis of data involving exposures to environmental pollutants. This chapter explores the process of identifying non-random spatial patterns of disease, and introduces several important statistical techniques (nearest-neighbor analysis, randomization tests, and bootstrap analytic methods) that can be applied to a wide range of other kinds of data.

Keywords:   spatial distribution, epidemiologic data analysis, Poisson model, nearest-neighbor analysis, randomization tests, bootstrap analysis
