Geocoding accuracy and the recovery of relationships between environmental exposures and health

Mazumdar, Soumya; Rushton, Gerard; Smith, Brian J.; Zimmerman, Dale L.; Donham, Kelley J.


BACKGROUND This research develops methods for determining the effect of geocoding quality on relationships between environmental exposures and health. The likelihood of detecting an existing relationship - statistical power - between measures of environmental exposures and health depends not only on the strength of the relationship but also on the level of positional accuracy and completeness of the geocodes from which the measures of environmental exposure are made. This paper summarizes the...[Show more]
