(1) Disease Dynamics
Overview

The DSDISP model contains a demographically differentiated population and allow each group to pass through the multiples stages of an infection (SIR). This allows a population to be distinguished by categories such as age, behavioral risk, or income level, which may have different rates of disease progression.

Question

How does a disease spread through a demographically segregated population?
