The assumptions underlying a simple simulation
model of tuberculosis epidemiology are
reviewed with particular reference to Indian
conditions. Some modifications are suggested to
reflect the observed epidemiological trends. The
model is then fed with the compiled relevant
parameters. By comparing the observed trend
with the estimated trend it is concluded that the
model is valid. The trend predicted by the present
model agrees closely with the one by a more
Pilot epidemiological surveys are recommend-ad
with a view to bring about further refine-ments
in the model.
