The spatial scan statistic has an advantage over geographical analysis machine in taking into account the problems of multiple testing. Disease mapping Data visualisation is the first step in disclosing the complex structure in data. For instance, mapping rates in small areas tend to create a misleading picture see the section Smoothing while using statistical significance, particularly in areas with large populations, produce small p values indicating statistical significance, but do not disclose scientifically interesting differences.
These include the selection of an appropriate administrative unit for mapping, the selection of an appropriate method of data classification in the map, and the selection of an appropriate colour scheme or collection of hatching patterns.
We will not discuss these issues in detail here. We will cover the optimum choice of mapping regions very briefly in the following section, and for the other issues refer the readers to other sources, detailed in the reference list.
Therefore, an ecological study may be considered to be based on an incomplete design. At the same time, if the regions chosen are too small, the results may show spurious spatial patterns due to random variation in small numbers of events. Such models are able to provide new insights into the aetiology of diseases that are otherwise unavailable.
This is clear from the limited number and types of statistical analyses that most GISs are able to perform. Although greater stability of rates may be achieved by choosing larger areas, simple mapping of the raw data is unattractive in that it still yields sudden changes at geographical boundaries.
However, when the underlying population is small and, therefore, the statistical error correspondingly large, the observed rate is shrunk by smoothing towards a value representing the overall mean of the map. A Bayesian analysis is one way of achieving this combination.
In a Bayesian analysis, an assumed prior probability distribution for the values of a parameter the area rate is converted under the influence of the observations—ie, the observed rates to a posterior ie, after using the observed data distribution for the values of that parameter. This posterior distribution is then used to provide an estimate for the parameter the estimated rate for a given area together with a standard error for this estimate. With such an approach, the prior distribution can be based on the results of previous studies or on background knowledge.
It is also possible to base this distribution on particular global aspects of the data currently at hand. The latter approach is usually referred to as empirical Bayes estimation. If there is a large number of observations, then the prior knowledge has little influence ie, the observed rates provide good estimates ; if not, the prior knowledge is used to reduce smooth the sampling fluctuations between the unreliable observed rates.
Spatial autocorrelation Lack of independence of data from neighbouring areas gives rise to spatial autocorrelation.
The correlation or dependency implies that rates for geographically close areas are more highly related than those from areas that are geographically distant. Detecting spatial dependency, which is accomplished by the use of spatial autocorrelation statistics, would help researchers to justify their selected regression models in an ecological analysis, or their smoothing techniques when mapping a rare disease or when mapping in small boundaries see the sections on ecological analysis, spatial regression and smoothing.
If the risk within a given area is constant, the distribution of the count for that area is clearly a binomial distribution. Try again later. Citations per year.
