5.5.18 What other tools can be used for epidemiological analysis?

Any commercially available or free-downloadable statistical software should be used for statistical analysis of laboratory results. Alongside the rabies database, the use of geographical information systems (GIS) should be standard for spatial-temporal analysis and visualisation of rabies surveillance and monitoring.

Occasionally, modelling of specific epidemiological situations can be helpful in finding solutions for adapting vaccination strategies. The latter can facilitate decision making by responsible authorities to speed reaction time and enhance cost-effectiveness.
