Wiley series in probability and statistics


Lawson (epidemiology and biostatistics, University of South Carolina) covers the analysis and application of spatial statistical methods. In Part I, he introduces basic definitions and terminology, along with map construction and some basic models. In Part II, he applies this knowledge to fundamental problems of spatial epidemiology, such as disease mapping, ecological analysis, and space-time analysis. The book includes numerous data sets, each representing a different approach to analysis. This second edition offers a new emphasis on bioterrorism and disease surveillance. The audience for the book includes medical statisticians as well as researchers and practitioners from public health and epidemiology. The book is also suitable for graduate students of statistics and epidemiology, and for professionals working in government agencies.
