Analysis based on incidence date (Incidence count in program indicator)


(Nayeem Al Mifthah) #1

Dear CBS members

In disease surveillance, it is always important to know the incidence of
diseases over the period and geographical areas.

In current setting, we have limited opportunities to analyze through
incidences in DHIS2. It can't be analyze according to period.

Example: To know the onset of measles (incidence) according to the month of
2017 or in last 12 months.

One option probably add program variable called V{incident_count} in
program indicator or enrollment count based on incident date.

I have posted a jira issue: https://jira.dhis2.org/browse/DHIS2-2486

Hi

I would support that. While I have not come across many actual cases where
the quality of the date of incidence is good enough (i.e. in too many cases
the incidence and enrollment dates are the same, which typically reflect
poor assessment and/or data collection for that area), I can see that it
might be required for environments where the data quality is better
(typically more concentrated and well-resourced outbreak areas where
management are able to track infection patterns in real time).

Not sure but one option might be, by adding a new analysis type 'Incidence'
in program indicator beside 'Event' and 'Enrollment'

It seems same to count of Enrollment and Incidence, in reality it is
different. Sometimes disease 'incidence date' is on previous
months/week/year. As a result in program indicator, analysis type
'Enrollment' may show the data in February where incidence is on January or
December of previous year.

For epidemiological study it is important to know the disease by incidence.
