Estimate of Spatially-Varying Relative Risk
Generic command to estimate the spatially-varying probability of each type of point, or the ratios of such probabilities.
- Either a point pattern (class
"ppp") or a fitted point process model (class
"ppm") from which the probabilities will be estimated.
- Additional arguments appropriate to the method.
In a point pattern containing several different types of points,
we may be interested in the spatially-varying probability of each
possible type, or the relative risks which are the
ratios of such probabilities.
relrisk is generic and can be used to
estimate relative risk in different ways.
relrisk.ppp is the method for point pattern
datasets. It computes nonparametric estimates of relative risk
by kernel smoothing.
relrisk.ppm is the method for fitted point
process models (class
"ppm"). It computes parametric
estimates of relative risk, using the fitted model.
