  1. The estimates of regression coefficients for the index of exposure to MSWIs, that is posterior means for the hierarchical models, their 95% confidence/credible intervals and DIC and p D terms for models comparison
  2. Model 2: Poisson regression; Model 3: hierarchical model with heterogeneity component; Model 4: hierarchical model with both heterogeneity and spatial components.
