The dataset was approved for use in our study by the Regional Ethical Review Board in Stockholm (Record Number 2004/5:8). The data used in this article is a completely anonymized subset of the original data material, and keys to exact dates and identities of hospitals and individuals were not provided. While the data are de-identified, the owner of the data, Stockholm County Council, will not allow public sharing of the dataset. Interested researchers can verify the dataset at Stockholm University, and we, the authors, will do our best to help such interested researchers contact the owner of the data. Requests for data access should be addressed to FL (email@example.com). The Matlab code for parameter inference in a synthetic MRSA outbreak simulated in an example time-varying contact network is provided as Source code file 1. Numerical data for Figures 1-5 are also provided.
