% 'EpiSignalDetection' package European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC)

Description

The 'EpiSignalDetection' package allows the user to explore 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.

The package includes:

  • Signal Detection tool (Fig.1) an interactive 'shiny' application in which the user can import external data and perform basic signal detection analyses;
  • An automated report (Fig.2) 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).
