Evaluation and comparison of statistical methods for early temporal detection of outbreaks: A simulation-based study

Fig 2

CDC algorithm performances for α = 0.01 by increasing past outbreak amplitude k1 = 0, 2, 3, 5 or 10 with (i) on the first row: false positive rate for 42 simulated scenarios, (ii) on the second row: probability of detection for 42 simulated scenarios (each curve corresponding to a scenario) by increasing current outbreak amplitude k2 = 1 to 10.
