Inferring Social Networks from Outbreaks [chapter]

Dana Angluin, James Aspnes, Lev Reyzin
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We consider the problem of inferring the most likely social network given connectivity constraints imposed by observations of outbreaks within the network.  ...  Given such constraints, the problem would then be to find a maximum likelihood social network from the disease data.  ...  Here, we consider inferring the structure of social networks by observing phenomena that give us information about their connectivity.  ...

Epidemiological and Viral Genomic Sequence Analysis of the 2014 Ebola Outbreak Reveals Clustered Transmission

2014 Clinical Infectious Diseases  
Using Ebolavirus genomic and epidemiological data, we conducted the first joint analysis in which both data types were used to fit dynamic transmission models for an ongoing outbreak.  ...  For example, we estimated a clustering coefficient of ϕ = 0.21 (95% CI, .196-.223) from empirical contact tracing data obtained from the Liberian Ministry of Health and Social Welfare.  ...  The agreement of our empirical, network, and genomic analyses supports a conclusion of significant social clustering, a conclusion that is robust to likely underreporting.  ...

Causal Inference in Disease Spread across a Heterogeneous Social System [article]

Minkyoung Kim, Dean Paini, Raja Jurdak
2018 arXiv   pre-print
From our causal inference, outbreaks are more likely driven by statewide global diffusion over time, leading to complex behavior of disease spread.  ...  We infer causal relationships between infections and quantify the reflexivity of a meta-population, the level of feedback on event occurrences by its internal dynamics (likelihood of a regional outbreak  ...  We would like to express our gratitude to Cassie Jansen and Fiona May at Queensland Health for providing dengue outbreak data and for valuable discussions and to Tourism Research Australia for providing  ...

Inferring Social Network Structure from Bacterial Sequence Data

Mateusz M. Pluciński, Richard Starfield, Rodrigo P. P. Almeida, Petter Holme
2011 PLoS ONE  
Using DNA sequence data from pathogens to infer transmission networks has traditionally been done in the context of epidemics and outbreaks.  ...  circulating in an endemic equilibrium could be used to infer information about host contact networks.  ...  If global network properties can be inferred from MLST data then it is also plausible that some of the local network structure can also be gleaned from the same data.  ...
