Individual space–time activity-based modelling of infectious disease transmission within a city

Yang, Y., Atkinson, Peter and Ettema, Dick (2008) Individual space–time activity-based modelling of infectious disease transmission within a city Journal of the Royal Society Interface, 5, (24), pp. 759-772. (doi:10.1098/rsif.2007.1218). (PMID:17999949).

Record type: Article


This paper provides an example of the application of an individual space–time activity-based
model (ISTAM) to the simulation of the transmission of infectious disease in Eemnes, a city in
The Netherlands. Four questions were addressed: (i) how to build the whole population at the
city level, (ii) how to build the structure of the activity bundles for the city, (iii) how to assign
daily activity patterns to each individual, and (iv) how to simulate within-AB transmission.
The model was calibrated and examples of simulation results such as dynamics of the
population during a whole day, infection distribution and network analysis are presented.
