PHC Conference webinar: Cancer morbidity risk modelling – regional variation over time

Wednesday 12 August 2020 15:00 - 16:00

Part of the Protection, Health and Care Conference 2020 webinar series

Modelling the structure and trends of cancer morbidity risk is important for pricing and reserving in related health insurance fields such as critical illness insurance and care provision. We model the dynamics of cancer incidence over time in different regions in England, using 1981-2016 ONS data. The modelling allows estimation of cancer rates at various age, year, gender and region levels, following a Bayesian setting to account for statistical uncertainty. Our analysis indicates significant regional variation in cancer incidence rates.
