SpaceStat and Geohealth Tutorials – Mixed Model Regression Part 1: About the Data
None needed for this step.
This tutorial will use the Mixed Model Regression method in SpaceStat software to explore the patterns in all cancer mortality rates among women, 1969-2002. We will look for changing spatial patterns over time and see if some basic sociodemographic covariates can help to explain them. The mixed model approach will allow specified covariates to vary across broad U.S. regions.
In this step we will talk briefly about the data that you will analyze in the next 3 steps.
