Papers to Appear


Cover image: The figure depicts a result presented in the paper "Simultaneous spatial smoothing and outlier detection using penalized regression, with application to childhood obesity surveillance from electronic health records," by Young-Geun Choi, Lawrence P. Hanrahan, Derek Norton, and Ying-Qi Zhao, which aims to produce an interpretable disease map and detect localized outbreaks simultaneously. Each polygon represents an areal unit. The color fills represent the estimated areal-level baseline risks of disease (skyblue, low rate; green, moderate rate; red, high rate), which was assumed spatially smooth. The starred points indicate areal units in which the risk is strongly above or below the colored trend (black, above-trend; yellow, below-trend). The localized outbreaks from our model may enable comparative investigations at granular levels. Details can be found in the paper.
