This chapter begins with a brief discussion of disease cluster alarms and cluster investigation protocols. This is followed by a review of some statistical concepts and terminology relevant to spatial clustering. It concludes with an outline of some of the more commonly-used global clustering methods for point and area data, highlighting the advantages and disadvantages of each technique and exploring their application through a review of their use in the literature.
