Spatial analysis of exposure coefficients with applications to stomach cancer

Abstract:

Earlier ecological studies on the relation between H. pylori infection and stomach cancer have considered that the relation between these two variables, as estimated by the exposure coefficient, is constant. However, there is evidence to suggest that this relation changes geographically due to differences in strains of H. pylori. Since the prevalence of H. pylori varies with socio-economic status, the association between the latter and stomach cancer mortality may also vary geographically. Th...
