Wastewater Analysis in the Light of Covid-19: A GAMLSS Approach
Sprache des Vortragstitels:
37th International Workshop on Statistical Modelling
Sprache des Tagungstitel:
Generalized Additive Models for Location, Scale & Shape (GAMLSS) are used to analyse longitudinal data obtained from wastewater treatment plants in Austria. The variable of interest is the amount of Covid-19 related excretion in the wastewater. The goal of the project is to model this wastewater signal as a function of covariates, specifically the vaccination rate and virus variants.
Simple Gamma mixed-effects regression models are compared to more flexible GAMLSS models using the Box-Cox t distribution.
