A Bayesian hierarchical model was used to study the spatial variation in mortality risk from lung and pleural cancer in both sexes, and breast and soft tissue sarcoma (STS) in women in Piedmont (north-west Italy, average population 4 349 411) from 1980 to 2000. Of these four neoplasms, two are common (lung and breast) and two rare (pleura and STS); two have well recognized risk factors (lung and pleura) while the other two (breast and STS) have no single strong risk factor. Data were analysed… CONTINUE READING
