Using Influenza-like Illness-specific School Absenteeism as an Early Warning System for Detecting Community Influenza: The project aims at further developing and implementing an influenza-like illness (ILI)-specific absentee monitoring system and assessing its usability for early detection of influenza and other respiratory pathogens in the surrounding community. To achieve this aim, the project will: 1) rapidly determine the causes of school absenteeism in 4K-12 students across selected school district(s) over a four-year period, 2) detect within-household transmission of influenza in households from which a student has been absent from school due to ILI, and 3) assess comparability between surveillance based on influenza-specific absenteeism and multiple layers of complimentary influenza surveillance centered on this school district.
