From: Shared component modelling as an alternative to assess geographical variations in medical practice: gender inequalities in hospital admissions for chronic diseases

Figure 1

Gender differences in the risk of admission. Maps at the top show the utilization ratios estimated by using the classical model. Maps at the bottom show the estimation by using BYM posterior probability of a risk being above 1. Dark brown color in the posterior probability maps represents areas where the probability of having a relative risk of admission higher than 1 is above 0.95.
