Risk of zoonoses hospitalisation in Queensland Local Government Areas

Viewed: 796

This dataset consists of a shapefile (GIS format) of the risk and the probability of risk greater than 1.5-fold of zoonoses hospitalisation in the Queensland Local Government Areas (LGA), according to the Australian Standard Geographical Classification. The risk estimates were calculated from hospitalisation data for a group of environmentally transmitted zoonoses during the 15-year period 1996-2010, using a Bayesian spatial hierarchical model. The LGA map was produced from an analysis of the distribution of the LGA across the census years 1996, 2001 and 2006. The risk estimates in the shapefile table are the LGA relative risk of zoonoses hospitalisation and the posterior probability > 1.5 (probability of excess risk) respectively, after sociodemographic and occupational risk factors were taken into account in the regression analysis.
