Outbreak Detection: Application to Infectious Disease Surveillance
This chapter describes the methodological issues involved in outbreak detection and gives examples from a range of statistical techniques. It focuses on infectious disease detection because most outbreak detection systems have been applied to infectious disease. However, the methods described apply more generally, and examples are drawn from related areas, such as monitoring birth defects.
