What other data can be useful?

- Human population size (e.g. from national censuses) to make extrapolations about dog population sizes and also to help judge populations at risk.
- Dog population size, which can be estimated using these techniques, to estimate the amount of vaccines needed for campaigns.
- Administrative boundaries, topographical and ecological features to help determine when and where to implement campaigns and to effectively evaluate geographically specific surveillance data.
- Dog movements, including sites that could be used to monitor dog movements (e.g. zoo-sanitary inspection points and police check-points) for targeting surveillance efforts.
- Information on the management of other zoonotic diseases.
