Table 2 Overview of the simulation scenarios

From: Incidence estimation from sentinel surveillance data; a simulation study and application to data from the Belgian laboratory sentinel surveillance

Detection scenario Participating labs Number of cases Probability of detection
Attractiveness of the labs: Spatial heterogeneity
Random Labs are randomly selected. The number of labs varies from 20 to 100 (20, 40, 60, 80, 100) 100–1000 (100, 150, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900, 1000) Uniform Uniform
Distance Uniform Distance decay
Attractiveness Multinomial Uniform
Attractiveness and distance Multinomial Distance decay
