Geographical epidemiology, spatial analysis and geographical information systems: a multidisciplinary glossary

By Mohsen Rezaeian, Graham Dunn, Selwyn St Leger and Louis Appleby

Abstract

We provide a relatively non‐technical glossary of terms and a description of the tools used in spatial or geographical epidemiology and associated geographical information systems. Statistical topics included cover adjustment and standardisation to allow for demographic and other background differences, data structures, data smoothing, spatial autocorrelation and spatial regression. We also discuss the rationale for geographical epidemiology and specific techniques such as disease clustering, disease mapping, ecological analyses, geographical information systems and global positioning systems
