This dataset provides reported counts of cases and deaths occuring at different time points across a simulated outbreak. Details of the data simulation algorithm are provided in the manuscript "Estimating case fatality ratios from infectious disease surveillance data" (Reich et al., under review, available upon request).

`time`

`grp`

`R`

number of recovered cases reported at the given t and j

`D`

number of deaths reported at the given t and j
