Exploring the Association between Parental Concern about Vaccine Safety and Incomplete Childhood Immunization: A Multivariate ModelDownload
High levels of immunization coverage are required to maintain control of infectious diseases that previously caused significant illness and death in Canada. However, childhood immunizations have been so successful that many Canadians have never seen the impact of these diseases, with some parents...
Evaluating the process performance of mining and petroleum operations requires numerical geological models of many related rock properties or variables. Taken together, they provide a characterization of the geologic deposit that forms the basis for engineering design and decision making. Complex...
Composite endpoints are increasingly popular outcomes in clinical trials of heart failure. Uptake has outpaced guidance on their use and little consistency is seen in their construction. We must consider how best to handle multiple outcomes statistically and clinically, ie in a way that is both...
Reservoir management tools use geostatistical models to make better decisions and improve hydrocarbon recovery. Developing improved numerical modeling techniques that lead to more accurate and precise geostatistical models will improve flow forecasting, hydrocarbon recovery, reservoir management...
Multivariate geostatistical modeling of unconventional shale gas reservoirs in the presence of sparse dataDownload
A geostatistical workflow for modeling multivariate sparsely sampled variables in shale gas reservoirs is proposed in this thesis and applied to a study area in the HRB. This workflow accounts for direct and cross spatial correlation between variables while decreases computational modeling time...
