Disease mapping involves the analysis of geo-referenced disease incidence data and has many applications, for example within resource allocation, cluster alarm analysis, and ecological studies. There is a real need amongst public health workers for simpler and more efficient tools for the analysis of geo-referenced disease incidence data. Bayesian and multilevel methods provide the required efficiency, and with the emergence of software packages – such as WinBUGS and MLwiN – are now easy to implement in practice.
  • Provides an introduction to Bayesian and multilevel modelling in disease mapping.
  • Adopts a practical approach, with many detailed worked examples.
  • Includes introductory material on WinBUGS and MLwiN.
  • Discusses three applications in detail – relative risk estimation, focused clustering, and ecological analysis.
  • Suitable for public health workers and epidemiologists with a sound statistical knowledge.
  • Supported by a Website featuring data sets and WinBUGS and MLwiN programs.

Disease Mapping with WinBUGS and MLwiN  provides a practical introduction to the use of software for disease mapping for researchers, practitioners and graduate students from statistics, public health and epidemiology who analyse disease incidence data.
