Project: The development of statistical methodology to evaluate the infection dynamics of infectious agents based on cross-sectional and longitudinal data

project duration
01-JAN-04 – 31-OCT-08
The evolution of an infectious disease is often studied based on prevalence data. In this project, we will evaluate whether prevelance information, the infectious status at one moment in time, is sufficient to study the infection dynamics and to what extent longitudinal data lead to the same results. The developed methodology will be applied to mastitis, Ostertagia and Salmonella.
