From: Trends and area variations in Potentially Preventable Admissions for COPD in Spain (2002–2013): a significant decline and convergence between areas

Fig. 4

Spatial patterns in standardized rates of COPD-PPH by Health Service Areas for the entire population, men and women (Spanish NHS, 2002–2013). Foot: COPD-PPH: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease for Potentially Preventable Hospitalizations; NHS: National Health System. The left-hand maps show the COPD-PPH admission spatial risk associated to each Health Service Areas to be constant along the period. The right-hand map shows the posterior probability that this spatial risk will be higher than 1 (probabilities above 0.8 indicate high-risk areas)
