  1. Fulltext. The ecological effects of individual exposures and nonlinear disease dynamics in populations.

    Article - En anglais


    To describe causally predictive relationships, model parameters and the data used to estimate them must correspond to the social context of causal actions.

    Causes may act directly upon the individual, during a contact between individuals, or upon a group dynamic.

    Assuming that outcomes in different individuals are independent puts the causal action directly upon individuals.

    Analyses making this assumption are thus inappropriate for infectious diseases, for which riks factors alter the outcome of contacts between individuals.
