- A comparison of errors in variables methods for use in regression models with spatially misaligned dataKenneth K Lopiano
Department of Statistics, University of Florida, Florida, USA
Stat Methods Med Res 20:29-47. 2011..Three of the methods are extended to the change-of-support case where X is observed at points, but Y is observed for areal units, and these approaches are also compared via simulation...
- Statistical considerations for a chronic bioassay study: Exposure to Decamethylcyclopentasiloxane (D5) and incidence of uterine endometrial adenocarcinomas in a 2-year inhalation study with Fischer ratsLinda J Young
Department of Statistics, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, University of Florida, Gainesville, USA Electronic address
Regul Toxicol Pharmacol 74:S14-24. 2016..The evidence tends to support the conclusion that D5 at the highest dose level (160 ppm) results in an increased incidence of adenocarcinomas. However, it is important to verify any potential effect through a biological investigation. ..
- Assessing the association between environmental impacts and health outcomes: a case study from FloridaLinda J Young
Department of Statistics, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611 0399, USA
Stat Med 27:3998-4015. 2008..Results differed, depending on whether the spatial support was ignored or accounted for in the models. The opportunities and challenges associated with EPHT analyses are discussed and future directions highlighted...
- Advancing the science of EPA guidelines for sponsor-financed topical insect repellent efficacy studiesLinda J Young
University of Florida, 404 McCarty C, P O Box 110339, Gainesville, FL 32611 0339, USA
Regul Toxicol Pharmacol 56:51-3. 2010..This paper reviews some of the statistical flaws in the proposed revisions to these guidelines and suggests possible improvements. This review is important because EPA's revisions to the 1999 guidelines do not address these issues...
- Linking health and environmental data in geographical analysis: it's so much more than centroidsLinda J Young
Department of Statistics, University of Florida, Gainesville, USA
Spat Spatiotemporal Epidemiol 1:73-84. 2009..Our focus is on relatively simple methods and concepts that can be implemented with ESRI's(®) ArcGIS(®) software...
- Should we fly or drive? The use of a computer-based system (ANTSS) for resource utilizationMichael D Weiss
Department of Pediatrics, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida 32601 0296, USA

- Identifying Heat Waves in Florida: Considerations of Missing Weather DataEmily Leary
School of Natural Resources and Environment, University of Florida, PO Box 116455, Gainesville, FL, 32611, United States of America
PLoS ONE 10:e0143471. 2015..No uniform definition of a heat wave exists. Most past research on heat waves has focused on evaluating the aftermath of known heat waves, with minimal consideration of missing exposure information...
- RNA-seq: technical variability and samplingLauren M McIntyre
Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida, USA
BMC Genomics 12:293. 2011..However, strategies for dealing with technical variation will differ depending on the magnitude. The size of technical variance, and the role of sampling are examined in this manuscript...
