In this paper some properties of a convenient estimator, derived from a martingale estimating function, for the basic reproduction number of the general epidemic model are given for both finite and large samples. These properties give some guidelines for using this convenient estimator. It is shown that it underestimates the parameter and that the bias… CONTINUE READING
