Performance of collocation ranking: first benchmark. Subfigures 1a and 1b are based on the first benchmark, which is the average probability of individuals in a given subpopulation to become infected during an outbreak, B1. The abscissa shows the percentage of the population selected for prevention or surveillance efforts. The ordinate shows the ratio of the B1 of the collocation indicator and the B1 of any other indicator, that is, ordinate values >1 indicate that the collocation indicator performs better than the other indicator it is compared to. Subfigure 1a compares the B1 value of the 10th, 25th, 50th, 75th, and 90th percentile of 100,000 randomly selected subpopulations to the B1 of subpopulations selected by the collocation indiciator. Subfigure 1b compares B1 of all indicators defined in the Methods section, as well as the optimal B1 , to the B1 of the collocation indicator.
