HINTS 4 Overview and Schedule

HINTS Knowledge Maps

GIS isopleth maps visually represent a large number of data points in a “weather map” fashion. GIS maps using HINTS data provide a visual representation of possible geographic relationships in HINTS cancer-related knowledge variables. Because of instability in some state values from relatively small sample sizes, the maps are not intended to provide specific state-level estimates of HINTS variables; instead, they are meant to illustrate regional differences.
