Abstract

These methods go well beyond the conventional nearest-neighbour and quadrat analyses because they fail to allow for spatial variation in population density. They explore spatial variation in disease risk, spatial and space-time clustering. The raised incidence of disease around suspected point sources of pollution is modelled. The methods are illustrated by reference to recent case studies including child cancer incidence, Burkitt's lymphoma, cancer of the larynx and childhood asthma
