Consortium for Statistics in Disease Surveillance


CSIDS: the Consortium for Statistics in Disease Surveillance (previously Sykdomspulsen) is a real-time analysis and disease surveillance system designed and developed at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health (NIPH/FHI). It is a unique project that processes new data (e.g. covid-19 cases) shortly after it is available. Complex statistical analyses are automatically run for all locations in Norway, producing reports and alerting various stakeholders. This provides the health authorities the ability to make proactive strategic decisions with the most up-to-date information.

R packages

csverse is a number of R packages that have been developed by the Sykdomspulsen team to help with infectious diseases surveillance.

From Sykdomspulsen to CSIDS

In November 2022, the core components of Sykdomspulsen and splverse R packages have been migrated to CSIDS: the Consortium for Statistics in Disease Surveillance. Please refer to CSIDS for ongoing developments.
