A) study area; (B) higher resolution view to show overlaying of datasets Data checking A further advantage of GIS is that it allows you to explore data interactively to understand their spatial features. This may be useful when checking for data errors. 8, which shows a plot of the number of cases at individual postcode locations. Ordinarily you would expect only one or occasionally two cases to occur at the same point location. Here counts of cases have been made by postcode, and in the UK only around 14 households share the same postcode.

What other information would you like to have before you begin your analysis?

Feedback 1 In this study the particular outcome of interest is mortality – all causes (excluding accidents), respiratory disease and cardiovascular disease. The pollution variables measured were particles (black smoke), sulphur dioxide, ozone and nitrogen dioxide. 2 The data comprise the daily counts of deaths in London over a five-year period. Although not explicitly stated, it can be assumed that the main air pollution exposure variables would also have been recorded for the same time period and at the same daily resolution.
