CLUSTER

Written by

In statistical terms a group of subjects, closely linked in time and/or place of occurrence. For example, geographical clusters of LEUKAEMIA have been found – that is, an unexpectedly large number of persons with the disease who live in close proximity. Much research goes into trying to discover the cause of clusters but sometimes they appear to have occurred randomly.
