Supporting Information: Survey Data and Human Computation for Improved Flu Tracking. Gary King, April 5, 2020, Paper, "We describe a method for analyzing survey data and search history for real-time tracking of Influenza-like Illness (ILI). This supporting document outlines in detail the steps we took to implement the survey, analyze it, and build a flu-tracking model from it. We first describe the process for labeling queries according to whether they reflect an underlying flu-like experience. We use these labeled searches and survey responses to discern differences between users in the onset of ILI symptoms and flu search behavior. We then use insights from this analysis to build an aggregate-level flu-tracking model." Link
