Abstract

The AA. show how clustering may be investigated and displayed in such a way that it becomes a powerful tool in epidemiological research. As examples, they use incidence data from the Yorkshire health region for selected childhood cancers and adult haematopoietic malignancies. The methods would readily extend to any small clusters of rare events
