submitter and technician observations, and animal rabies detection in massachusetts, 1992-2006.a relationship was detected between the submitter and technician observations and animal rabies detection in massachusetts during 1992-2006 by logistic regression and fisher exact testing. the results suggested that aggression (or = 3.94, p < 0.0001), disorientation (or = 1.17, p = 0.0006), paralysis (or = 1.22, p = 0.041), unexplained wound (or = 1.472, p < 0.0001), and found dead (or = 1.16, p = 0.0089) were independently associated with positive rabies testing results at alpha 0.05 level adju ...200818047396
sampling design of multiwave studies with an application to the massachusetts health care panel study.a technique is presented which provides guidance on the spacing of follow-up waves in a multiwave study. only information from the baseline wave is needed, as well as rough parameter estimates for the survival distribution. the computations use the expected fisher information; a new method for its calculation is given. an analysis of the effects of simplifying assumptions, such as presuming that a distributional parameter is known, shows that gross discrepancies may result. data from the massach ...19911805320
