Seasonal Variation in Epidemiology
Marrero, Osvaldo
College Mathematics Journal, v44 n5 p386-398 Nov 2013
Seasonality analyses are important in medical research. If the incidence of a disease shows a seasonal pattern, then an environmental factor must be considered in its etiology. We discuss a method for the simultaneous analysis of seasonal variation in multiple groups. The nuts and bolts are explained using simple trigonometry, an elementary physical model, and several graphics. Two examples show how the method is applied.
