This is the first version published on CRAN. It requires surveillance >= 1.14.0. The main change is in the documentation, which became more comprehensive, especially for the included datasets.
Other changes include:
Changed the default
agegroups parameter in
grouping parameter in
contactmatrix()) such that it corresponds to the six age groups used by Meyer and Held (2017).
aggregateC() function is now exported.
This version has been used for the publication
Held L, Meyer S and Bracher J (2017). “Probabilistic forecasting in infectious disease epidemiology: The 13th Armitage lecture.” Statistics in Medicine, doi: 10.1002/sim.7363.
An additional year of norovirus surveillance counts has been added, such that
noroBE() can now extract data from the time range 2011-w01 to 2016-w30.
noroBE(by = "none") extracts the overall univariate time series.
update() method for
"fitC" objects, which enables modification of the
"hhh4" model with automatic refitting of the power parameter of the contact matrix.
plotHHH4_season_groups() gained an option to disable confidence intervals.
aggregateC()from aggregating a contact matrix to only two groups.
This is the original version published as supplementary data of
Meyer S and Held L (2017). “Incorporating social contact data in spatio-temporal models for infectious disease spread.” Biostatistics, 18(2), pp. 338-351, doi: 10.1093/biostatistics/kxw051.
