Symbolic transfer entropy reveals the age structure of pandemic influenza transmission from high-volume influenza-like illness data.

Abstract Existing methods to infer the relative roles of age groups in epidemic transmission can normally only accommodate a few age classes, and/or require data that are highly specific for the disease being studied. Here, symbolic transfer entropy (STE), a measure developed to identify asymmetric transfer of information between […]
