B-SHADE Estimation

Introduction

Sampling is a method to investigate and understand the population using a sample.

B-SHADE(Biased Sentinel Hospital based Area Disease Estimation) model can generate an unbiased estimation of the population with biased samples. Although originally designed for biased sentinel hospitals' patient number/incidence estimation, it is a common method for biased samples’ population estimation.
