`uls.zones`

determines the unique zones obtained by implementing the ULS (Upper Level Set) method of Patil and Taillie (2004).

1 | ```
uls.zones(cases, pop, w, ubpop = 0.5)
``` |

`cases` |
The number of cases observed in each region. |

`pop` |
The population size associated with each region. |

`w` |
A binary spatial adjacency matrix. |

`ubpop` |
The upperbound of the proportion of the total population to consider for a cluster. |

The zones returned must have a total population less than ubpop * the total population of all regions in the study area.

Returns a list of zones to consider for clustering. Each element of the list contains a vector with the location ids of the regions in that zone.
