Network-based epidemiology for hidden and hard-to-reach populations
This is the project webpage for the NIH Director’s New Innovator Award 1DP2HD091799-01.
Project goals include:
- New statistical methodology for network-based epidemiology
- New estimators for data obtained from respondent-driven sampling
- Methods for estimating the size of a hidden or hard-to-reach population
- Web-based software for analysis of network link-tracing surveys
