Diggle, Peter J. and Morris, Sara and Elliot, Paul and Shaddick, Gavin (1997) Regression modelling of disease risk in relation to point sources. Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series A, 160 (3). pp. 491-505.

Abstract

We describe a class of models for the investigation of possible raised risk of disease around putative sources of environmental pollution. An adaptation of the point process method suggested by Diggle and Rowlingson is presented, allowing the use of routinely available aggregated data and incorporating the more general distance–risk model suggested by Elliott and co-workers. An application to data on cancers of the stomach around municipal solid waste incinerators is presented.
