In this non-technical talk, I will reconnect with a long standing interest of mine, that of studying the geographical variations of chronic diseases and of exploiting the natural geographical variation of many environmental exposures to gain insight into disease determinants. With the increasing availability of area level data at a small scale, there are a number of non-standard aspects to spatial analyses in health that I shall discuss, including the use of hierarchical models to stabilize small area estimates, spatial confounding and ecological bias. The talk will be illustrated by studies in environment and health.

This talk is part of the Cambridge Statistics Discussion Group (CSDG) series.
