Evaluation of Temporal Aberration Detection Methods in New York City Syndromic Data


The NYC syndromic surveillance system has been monitoring syndromes from NYC emergency department (ED) visits for over a decade. We applied several aberration detection methodologies to a time series of ED visits in NYC spiked with synthetic outbreaks. This effort is part of a larger evaluation of the NYC syndromic system, funded by a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
