sparr: Spatial and Spatiotemporal Relative Risk

The sparr package for R provides functions to estimate fixed and adaptive kernel-smoothed spatial relative risk surfaces via the density-ratio method and perform subsequent inference. Fixed-bandwidth spatiotemporal density and relative risk estimation is also supported.

Installation

This package is available on CRAN, and we recommend installing it from there using the standard

install.packages('sparr')

If you wish to live on the bleeding edge, you may install from github using devtools:

# install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github('tilmandavies/sparr')

Example

This is a basic example of relative risk estimation for primary biliary cirrhosis cases from north east England.
