A research question of both statistical and public importance is raised about whether or not there are hotspots for which the incidence of pediatric cancer is relatively high in Florida. Five independent groups of researchers are invited to apply different methodologies to analyze the same data set with the same general goal. As one of these five study groups, I will provide background of this interesting project of “Analyses of Florida Pediatric Cancer Data” and discuss our own perspective. We propose to identify pediatric cancer clusters in Florida between 2000 and 2010 using a penalized generalized linear model. More specifically, we introduce a Poisson model for the observed number of cases on each of Florida’s ZIP Code Tabulation Areas (ZCTA) and regularize the associated disease rate estimates using a fused Lasso penalty. Our analysis suggests the presence of a number of pediatric cancer clusters during the period over study, with the largest ones being located around the cities of Jacksonville, Miami, Cape Coral/Fort Meyers and Palm Beach.
