Title

Cold Spot and Hot Spot Analysis for TRI Dioxin On-Site Release Levels and Breast Cancer Cases per County in the Four Corner States, 2017

Subject

The first map displays the cold spot and hot spot analysis for TRI Dioxin on-site release levels in counties with TRI Dioxin facilities in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah for the year of 2017. The second map displays the cold spot and hot spot analysis for breast cancer cases in each county where breast cancer case data was included in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah.

Description

The first map has several counties that have a 90% or higher confidence of a hot spot for TRI Dioxin release levels for facilities shown in light orange and orange. The counties with a 90% or higher confidence for a hot spot are located in Arizona. The other counties with TRI Dioxin facilities were not significant in this analysis. The second map has several counties with a 99% confidence for a hot spot for breast cancer cases shown in red. The counties with a 99% confidence for a hot spot are also located in Arizona. The other counties were not significant in this analysis. Since the TRI Dioxin facilities in Arizona were significant and the breast cancer cases in Arizona were significant, this could be a possible association between dioxin release levels and breast cancer cases.
