  1. Area variations in health outcomes : artefact or ecology.

    Article - En anglais

    The basic problem is how to estimate the size of a « ward effect » (the disadvantage of living in a « poor » ward over and above effects associated with individual or household circumstances).

    This is complicated by the hypothesized existence of intra-ward correlated errors; the only way to avoid this bias is to explicitly model the different variance components using multi-level modelling techniques.

    The purpose of this paper is to illustrate this technique.
