# Poliomyelitis cases in US

### Description

Poliomyelitis cases reported to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control for the years 1970 to 1983, that is, 168 observations.

### Usage

1 |

### Format

The format is: Time-Series [1:168] from 1970 to 1984: 0 1 0 0 1 3 9 2 3 5 ...

### Details

The data were originally modelled by Zeger (1988) who used a parameter driven approach, in which a first order autoregressive model was used for the latent process, to conclude that there is evidence of a decrease in the polio infection rate. The data were analysed also by Li (1994), Zeger and Qaqish (1988), Davis et al. (1999), and by Benjamin et al (2003).
