Ebola Synthetic Information

NDSSL has produced several synthetic West Africa countries that are being released to the larger academic community for research. This page provides access to NDSSL created individualized synthetic countries currently impacted by Ebola. These data sets were created by methods developed by NDSSL members over the past 20 years, based on the best available data. As our methods and source data are updated, we will release updated versions of these countries.

We are preparing detailed documentation for the data. In the meantime, please email us if you have specific questions regarding the Ebola synthetic countries.
