Abstract

In this paper, cumulative sum (CUSUM) control chart schemes are designed
to detect the increase or decrease in the events of cholera outbreaks in Nigeria. The designed schemes are applied on the WHO weekly epidemiological record of cholera cases in Nigeria between 1996 and 2005 to demonstrate the application of the technique. From the demonstration, the technique has a good potential as a tool for detecting cholera outbreaks
