Abstract:Positive autocorrelation was found to exist for the spatial distribution of quarantines among Illinois counties. This finding indicates that counties in close proximity tend to have similar numbers of herds under PrV quarantine. It was also found that space-time interaction or clustering was present for the date of quarantine initiation and the date of quarantine release. These findings indicate that PrV quarantines occur on a regional basis and close in time. Therefore, PrV eradication should be dealt with on a community or regional basis for greatest efficiency.
