RSurveillance: Design and Analysis of Disease Surveillance Activities

A range of functions for the design and analysis of disease surveillance activities. These functions were originally developed for animal health surveillance activities but can be equally applied to aquatic animal, wildlife, plant and human health surveillance activities. Utilities are included for sample size calculation and analysis of representative surveys for disease freedom, risk-based studies for disease freedom and for prevalence estimation. This package is based on Cameron A., Conraths F., Frohlich A., Schauer B., Schulz K., Sergeant E., Sonnenburg J., Staubach C. (2015). R package of functions for risk-based surveillance. Deliverable 6.24, WP 6 - Decision making tools for implementing risk-based surveillance, Grant Number no. 310806, RISKSUR (<>). Many of the 'RSurveillance' functions are incorporated into the 'epitools' website: Sergeant, ESG, 2019. Epitools epidemiological calculators. Ausvet Pty Ltd. Available at: <>.
