Notes

Abstract: Public health planners need an understanding of how disease outbreaks propagate in different populations to formulate effective control strategies. To this end, a framework to simulate and visualize infectious disease epidemics in a population was created. Contacts between individuals drive the spread of infectious disease outbreaks. Since actual behavior patterns of the population are unknown, the likelihood of a simulated contact between two individuals is determined by demographic similarities and geographic proximity. Geographic spread of the outbreak is visualized using a color coded map to represent proportions of populations affected. Geographic and demographic data from the U.S. Census Bureau are used in the simulation to facilitate exploration of outbreak propagation in real populations.
