A power comparison of generalized additive models and the spatial scan statistic in a case-control setting

Abstract

BACKGROUND A common, important problem in spatial epidemiology is measuring and identifying variation in disease risk across a study region. In application of statistical methods, the problem has two parts. First, spatial variation in risk must be detected across the study region and, second, areas of increased or decreased risk must be correctly identified… (More)
