From: Mathematical models used to inform study design or surveillance systems in infectious diseases: a systematic review

Design outcome Description
Follow-up The model was used to determine/inform the follow-up time of the study.
Timing of sampling The model was used to determine/inform at which time point(s) sampling should be performed.
Frequency The model was used to determine/inform the frequency at which sampling has to be collected (over time) during the study.
Number The model was used to determine/inform the number of sampling to collect over time during the study.
Monitoring The model was used to identify parameters or indicators that should be monitored during the study.
Sample size The model was used to determine/inform the sample size.
Whom The model was used to determine/inform which subgroups of the population studied should be sampled.
Power The model was used to perform statistical power calculations.
