8. An implicit assumption is that the probabilities of coming in contact with any other member in the population are the same. 3 The model From these assumptions it follows that the probability of getting in contact with an x . a Why is the denominator of this expression N − 1? e. 1− x N −1 = = N −1 x − N −1 N −1 N −1−x . N −1 The right-hand side of the first equation above is obtained by setting 1 = N−1 N−1 . The probability of not coming in contact with any infecteds, if A contacts are made is, 1 The correct term would be “infectious individuals”, but “infecteds” is easier to read and write.

Hamer (1906) and H. Soper (1929): Why diseases come and go 39 “[. . ] 1000 susceptibles added each interval, or step, and taking s = 20, 30, 40, 50, so that the steady state numbers of susceptibles are 20,000, 30,000, 40,000 and 50,000. A start was made at a peak, with z− 1 equal to z 1 , and consequently 2 2 x = m. The successive values of x are obtained by adding 1,000 susceptibles each time and subtracting the number of cases in the last or preceding interval. [. . ] A rather serious epidemic starting-point was taken, namely, when the cases were four times the accessions (that is, four times the number of cases characterizing a steady state, without oscillations) [.

Say by 2,200 susceptibles”. What modern interpretation of “comparative insusceptibility of young infants” could immunological considerations offer? Referring to the only figure of the article, Hamer then infers important epidemiologic features of measles in London, based on the stated assumptions and estimates epidemiologic quantities. The x-axis of the graph (M to N ) is the time axis, and y-axis represents a rate. For the epidemic curve this would be the measles incidence rate, for the horizontal line (D to E) the rate at which susceptibles are added, which is constant.
