PURPOSE This study focused on using Moran's tests and logistic regression to detect changes in spatial clustering for females and males. METHODS For spatial distribution analysis, an average morbidity rate for a 7-year period was calculated. Medical cases from Taiwan National Health Insurance (NHI) were used as the numerator, and the denominator was the average mid-year population. Spatial analysis techniques, with a morbidity-smoothing coefficient estimate based on the empirical Bayesian… CONTINUE READING
