BACKGROUND Various statistical methods have been developed to describe spatial heterogeneity, in terms of high risk zones. If no source can be determined, this heterogeneity can be globally or locally described. Global methods test a statistic estimated over the whole studied geographical area, whereas local methods estimate a statistic on each spatial unit (or regrouping unit). This paper aimed to present, and to compare results of an epidemiological application, of five methods of spatial… CONTINUE READING
