Table 1 Simulation parameters, their values and sources, used in the experiments

From: Impact of demographic disparities in social distancing and vaccination on influenza epidemics in urban and rural regions of the United States

Variables Values Source
Population size (number of individuals) Miami-Dade (2,169,349), Montgomery (77, 820) Synthetic populations [5, 24, 41]
Total number of daily contacts between individuals Miami-Dade (55,187,587), Montgomery (2,019,222) Synthetic populations [5, 24, 41]
Transmission rate Miami-Dade (0.00010), Montgomery (0.00018) Calibrated for each region to generate an attack rate of 25% in both the regions
Attack rate (Cumulative infections) 25% [42]
Serial interval Miami-Dade (2.65 days), Montgomery (2.59 days) Estimated from our disease model [43]
Interventions Vaccination and/or social distancing  
Latent period 1 day [s.d.: 0.63] [44, 45]
Infectious period 2 days [s.d.: 1.06] [44, 45]
Symptomatic proportion 67% [46]
Asymptomatic infectivity 33% [4749]
Vaccine efficacy 20%, 40%, 60% [50]
Simulation days 200 days Assumed
Initial number of infections (seeds) 20 for both Miami-Dade and Montgomery Assumed
Initial number of susceptible individuals Everyone, except the seeds Assumed
Number of replicates 25 Assumed
Number of scenarios 2 (compliance probability estimated with, and without predictors)
