Table 5 Component sensitivities and total annual surveillance sensitivity of the PAR surveillance system

From: Evaluating the surveillance for swine dysentery and progressive atrophic rhinitis in closed multiplier herds using scenario tree modelling

PAR surveillance component sensitivities for: Sensitivity % Costs CHF (≈ EUR)

  1. For monitored fattening groups (MF) (SComSeMFPHS) and active sampling (SComSeAS), the component sensitivity is given for one MF and one visit, respectively, whereas costs are summed up over all MFand visits with active sampling in one year. (No extra value in EUR given due to marginal difference to CHF at the time of publication (07.05.2015: 1.037 CHF = 1 EUR); PAR = progressive atrophic rhinitis)
