Resulting from a prestigious World Health Organisation (WHO) and EU Biomed programme initiative, this text offers an in depth report on advanced statistical tools for public health disease surveillance. Culminating in a WHO workshop, leading experts discussed complex methodologies for the statistical evaluation of disease mapping and risk assessment.
This book includes a broad variety of statistical techniques, and where appropriate examples are included on topical issues, such as the analysis of putative health hazards. For easy reference the text is presented in five distinct sections, each with an introductory review: disease mapping, clustering of disease, ecological analysis, risk assessment for putative sources of hazard, public health applications and case studies.
Representative of the most pertinent issues within disease surveillance and mapping, this book will provide an accessible overview for statisticians and epidemiologists.
