A mathematical-statistical model for the analysis of cross-sectional serological data with special reference to the epidemiology of malaria. A methodology for the detection of change in the trend of transmission

A methodology for the detection of change in the trend of transmission. A mathematical statistical model for the analysis of cross sectional serological data with special reference to the epidemiology of malaria A methodology for the detection of change in the trend of transmission: [viii] + 339

An attempt was made to develop a mathematical model for the assessment of trends in malaria transmission by using cross-sectional serological data. The model takes into account the time-dependent risk of receiving inoculations, the spatial-dependent risk of receiving inoculations, the immune response of the individuals (fading of antibodies), and the sensitivity and specificity of the serological tests.
