This book guides the reader from the foundations of disease mapping to the most advanced topic in this field, which is multidimensional modeling. The multidimensional framework makes possible the joint modeling of various risks patterns corresponding to combinations of several factors, such as age group, time period, disease, or sex. Thus, multivariate (respectively spatio-temporal) modeling is just a particular case of multidimensional theory with risks corresponding to different values of a single factor.
