Household Transmission of Seasonal Coronavirus Infections: Results from the Flu Watch cohort study

These datasets comprise the main analyses for the paper “Household Transmission of Seasonal Coronavirus Infections: Results from the Flu Watch cohort study”, published in Wellcome Open Research. Details of the statistical methods are reported in the article. Datasets are given in CSV format and, where relevant, in .dta format. Descriptions for each dataset are as follows:


Household_CoV_acquired.csv/dta – data required to compute the proportion of cases presumably acquired outside of the household versus and the proportion acquired from household transmission. Each row represents an anonymised PCR-confirmed seasonal coronavirus case.


Household_CoV_TransmissionRisk.csv/dta – data required to compute the risk of symptomatic onward household transmission following a seasonal coronavirus index case, and perform stratified descriptive analyses.


Household_CoV_SAR.csv/.dta – data required to compute the seasonal coronavirus secondary attack risk overall and by strain. Each row represents an anonymised exposed-index pair from a given outbreak.


HH Transmission Serial Interval.csv – presents available, anonymised data required to compute the median clinical-onset serial interval overall and by strain for each household outbreak
