e) Table 5, showing observed and expected cases, and the relative risk of dying from leukemia and brain cancer among the under-15 and under-25 age groups in towns situated at a distance of 5 km or less from incinerators and hazardous waste treatment installations, estimated using BYM models.
f) Table 6, showing observed and expected cases, and the relative risk of dying from cancer in towns situated at a distance of 5 km or less from incinerators and hazardous waste treatment installations as a whole, estimated using Poisson mixed regression and BYM models.
g) Table 7, showing Moran’s I statistics and p-values for spatial autocorrelation analyses, by tumor type.
h) Figure 1, showing graphs plotting deviance residuals against the distance to the nearest incinerator or hazardous waste treatment installation.
