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
