dacca: Model of cholera transmission for historic Bengal.

Description Usage Arguments Details Value References See Also Examples

Description

dacca constructs a ‘pomp’ object containing census and cholera mortality data from the Dacca district of the former British province of Bengal over the years 1891 to 1940 together with a stochastic differential equation transmission model. The model is that of King et al. (2008). The parameters are the MLE for the SIRS model with seasonal reservoir.
