Dear R Community,

I would like to announce the package "surveillance", which provides methods for the surveillance of count data time series originating from the routine collection of public health data.

The package addresses epidemiologists and statisticians working with routine surveillance, but it also offers an infrastructure for developers of new detection algorithms.

Implemented outbreak detection algorithms are:
* Stroup et al. (1989)

Modelling routines:
* A Poisson and negative binomial model for the analysis of
multivariate infectious disease surveillance data described in Held et al. (2005)

The paper available from http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s00180-007-0074-8 provides a good overview of the package. Source code and binaries (currently version 0.9-8) are available from CRAN. Visit the R-Forge project web page for more information, development versions and forums to discuss ideas and report bugs:


I would appreciate hearing about your experiences with the package.

Best regards,

-on behalf of the surveillance development team
