Comparative evaluation of cumulative infections observed for three experimental scenarios (i.e., “base case” in which no preventive behavior is modeled, “With predictors” case in which preventive behavior is assigned to individuals based on their demographics and “no predictors” case in which preventive behavior is assigned to individuals based on the average behavior observed in survey). The figure also compares cumulative infections across three vaccine efficacy levels (i.e., 20%, 40% and 60%) and two geographic regions (i.e., Montgomery, VA and Miami Dade, FL). Each box in the figure presents a five number summary: minimum, first quartile, median, third quartile, and maximum. Therefore, each box describes the distribution of cumulative infections produced by 25 replicates for each of the three experimental scenarios. Considering the median of 25 replicates to be the representative of a scenario, we observe that for a given vaccine efficacy, the scenarios with predictors (green boxes) consistently produce larger number of cumulative infections than those produced by scenarios without predictors (orange boxes). The red boxes show the base case where no intervention is applied. Therefore, every other scenario has a substantially lower number of cumulative infections as compared to the base case
