We analyzed the trends in the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak in Tokyo and Osaka from January 25 to May 06, 2020. To analyze the trends and to identify significant changes in trends we performed a joinpoint regression analysis. Since the last of March, COVID-19 cases soared up in Tokyo (β = 103.51) and Osaka (β = 28.07). During the 2nd and 3rd weeks of April, both Tokyo (β = 157.53) and Osaka (β = 60.96) experienced the peak growth in COVID-19 cases. Since then, with some hope…

Estimating average annual per cent change in trend analysis

The average annual per cent change (AAPC) is proposed, which uses sAPCs to summarize and compare trends for a specific time period and takes into account the trend transitions, whereas cAPC does not and can lead to erroneous conclusions.

Temporal Trends in Apparent Food Consumption in Bangladesh: A Joinpoint Regression Analysis of FAO’s Food Balance Sheet Data from 1961 to 2013

This study reveals and quantifies the significant secular changes in the dietary history of Bangladesh from 1961 to 2013 and identifies the increasing prevalence of overweightness and emergence of diet-related, non-communicable diseases in Bangladesh.

A Modified Bayes Information Criterion with Applications to the Analysis of Comparative Genomic Hybridization Data

The modified BIC is derived by asymptotic approximation of the Bayes factor for the model of Brownian motion with changing drift and performs well compared to existing methods in accurately choosing the number of regions of changed copy number.
