Last month we released a new population "model" feature allows users to segment populations into demographic groups (e.g., male/female, or age groups). By extending our existing population object, this new feature allows users to create subgroups within a population. This is very important in modeling sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and in modeling diseases that target specific age groups (e.g., Shigella).

This month we created a first demographic disease model that makes use of multiple populations. An important proof of principle, this will allow us to test with multiple populations and prepare for our future Shigella model. Being able to model the dynamics of a disease affecting more than a single population is a critical step toward eventually being able to simulate outbreaks of zoonotic and sexually transmitted diseases.
