Spatial clustering of the failure to geocode and its implications for the detection of disease clustering

Zimmerman, D.L.; Fang, X.; Mazumdar, Soumya


Geocoding a study population as completely as possible is an important data assimilation component of many spatial epidemiologic studies. Unfortunately, complete geocoding is rare in practice. The failure of a substantial proportion of study subjects' addresses to geocode has consequences for spatial analyses, some of which are not yet fully understood. This article explicitly demonstrates that the failure to geocode can be spatially clustered, and it investigates the implications of this for...[Show more]
