This five minute movie is a dynamic representation of an infection spreading through a transmission network over time. The data come from the National Longitudinal Survey of Adolescent Health. The animation uses a new method of network analysis to demonstrate that small differences in reported behavior can potentially explain the large racial disparities in HIV infection observed in the United States.
This movie accompanies the paper: Morris M., Kurth A., Hamilton D.T., Moody J., and Wakefield S., for The Network Modeling Group (2009) "Concurrent Partnerships and HIV Prevalence Disparities by Race: Linking Science and Public Health Practice" American Journal of Public Health 1023-1031, Vol 99, No. 6 http://www.ajph.org/cgi/content/abstr...
