Age-Period-Cohort Robust Bayesian Models for Projecting Cancer Incidence and Mortality in Puerto Rico
(NAACCR North American Association of Central Cancer Registries Annual Meeting, 2011)
Race is not available in Puerto Rican data so the Worksheet for Completeness of Case Ascertainment can not estimate completeness. Cancer data is subject to unavoidable delays. Projections of cancer incidence and mortality ...
Quick Anomaly Detection by the Newcomb–Benford Law, with Applications to Electoral Processes Data from the USA, Puerto Rico and Venezuela
A simple and quick general test to screen for numerical anomalies is presented. It can be applied, for example, to electoral processes, both electronic and manual. It uses vote counts in officially published voting units, ...
Dynamic Bayesian models for projecting cancer incidence in Puerto Rico
We estimate the present (2010) and predict the future (2014) of incidence for the top cancer tumor types in Puerto Rico (PR), by gender, age group and primary cancer site, to design public policy. Incidence data from Puerto ...
