Signal Detection Analysis
Exploring time series for signal detection. It is specifically designed
to detect possible outbreaks using infectious disease surveillance data
at the European Union / European Economic Area or country level.
Automatic detection tools used are presented in the paper
"Monitoring count time series in R: aberration detection in public health surveillance",
by Salmon et al. (2016) <10.18637>.
The package includes:
- Signal Detection tool, an interactive 'shiny' application
in which the user can import external data and perform basic signal detection analyses;
- An automated report in HTML format, presenting the results of the time series analysis in tables and graphs.
This report can also be stratified by population characteristics (see 'Population' variable).
