Table 1 Typology of neutral models. Models differ according to the reproduction of spatial correlation, the incorporation of non-uniform risk, and the filtering of noise caused by spatially varying population sizes.

From: Accounting for regional background and population size in the detection of spatial clusters and outliers using geostatistical filtering and spatial neutral models: the case of lung cancer in Long Island, New York
