Improving prevalence estimation through data fusion: methods and validation
Rights accessOpen Access
Estimation of health prevalences is usually performed with a single survey. Some attempts have been made to integrate more than one source of data. We propose here to validate this approach through data fusion. Data Fusion is the process of integrating two sources of data into one combined file. It allows us to take even greater advantage of existing information collected in databases. Here, we use data fusion to improve the estimation of health prevalences for two primary health factors: cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.
