Description

Function transformseries transforms whole datasets.

Usage

1
transformseries(i.data, i.transformation = 1, ...)

Arguments

i.data

Historical data series.

i.transformation

Transformation to apply to the dataset.

...

other paramaters to be used by functions to fit two waves.

Details

Input data must be a data.frame with each column a surveillance season and each row a week.

Transformation options:

Fill missings sustitute missing values with predicted values from a loess regression fit. If does not impute leading or trailing missings, only missings in the middle of the season.

Odd calculates the odd: p divided by 1-p.

Loess substitute the dataset with predicted values from a loess regression fit.

Two waves (observed) is used when there are two waves per season. It divides the original dataset in two using a mixture of two normal distributions. The expected option uses the same procedure but also substitutes all data with predicted values of the mixture fit.

Value

transformseries The transformed dataset.
