epitools: R tools for public health epidemiologists

Several years ago I (TJA) developed the ‘epitools’ R package for epidemiologic data and graphics. My goal was to have a practical package for practicing epidemiologists at local and state health departments. It was designed to conduct contingency table analyses for outbreak investigations, to construct epidemic curves, to improve graphical color selection, to implement basic methods from Chapter 4 of Rothman’s Modern Epidemiology, and more. Recently, ‘epitools’ maintenance was taken over by Adam Omidpanah from the Washington State University.
