Welcome to the website of the research group of spatial statistics of the Public University of Navarra. On this page you can find information on the activities and publications of the group and other related information.
Spatial Statistics is a research group dedicated to develop methodology and solve problems in the field of applied statistics in a broad sense. Currently, our research is focus on the statistical modeling of spatial and spatio-temporal processes with environmental and biomedical applications.
Much of the work is motivated by practical problems, like analyzing the space-time evolution of cancer mortality risks to facilitate epidemiologists and public health researchers to find risk factors that could affect cancer mortality. Detecting regions with extreme mortality risks is also our aim, helping society to avoid health inequalities.
The group aims to exchange knowledge, generate new thinking and work helping to solve real problems in many fields. Collaboration with companies, other research groups, and public administrations has been our rule. Specifically, the Basque Country Statistical Institute has implemented small area estimation procedures developed by our group.
