Title: Analyzing cancer mortality in small areas using Bayesian B-splines
In recent years, models incorporating splines have been considered for smoothing risks in disease mapping. Although these models are very fexible, they can be computationally demanding in certain cases. In this talk, several models including one, two, and three dimensional B-splines (penalized or un-penalized) are proposed to analyze spatio-temporal risks. As computing time could be a limitation in real practice, integrated nested Laplace approximations are considered for model fitting and inference. The complete set of proposed models are used to analyze cancer mortality data in small areas.
At 15:45 there will be a coffee hour in E10. At 16:15 the presentation will take place in HS9.
