Software

areaglmm This R package contains functions for fitting area-level spatial and spatio-temporal models in R, using the spatial correlation structure described in Hund et al. (2012).  The package’s regression function operates on a new class of areal data object, which can be created using functions in the package. Plotting functions are also provided for mapping the area level relative risks and continuous underlying spatial residuals.
