This group sample is often chosen to be representative of the population in the area, but may be stratified by age/sex/location to further explore the details of transmission in specific groups. Because human DENV viremia is brief (typically 2–5 days), recent and past DENV infections in longitudinal cohorts are most practically detected using serological methods. Incidence can be estimated by testing paired sera collected before and after the high DENV transmission season for evidence of newly developed anti-DENV antibodies.
