Honey bee Winter mortality 2012-2014 - Epilobee analysis
About the project
EPILOBEE was the first active epidemiological surveillance program implemented in 17 EU Member States, over 2 consecutive years (from autumn 2012 to summer 2014), following a harmonised protocol based on the EU reference laboratory guidelines. EFSA requested a statistical analysis on the EPILOBEE dataset to establish associations between colony mortalities and some factors including disease prevalence, the context of beekeeping and the apiary geographical distribution. The data set published is the result of the data cleaning and categorization performed on the EPILOBEE original dataset regarding winter mortality. The dataset comprises 4758 observations from apiaries across Europe.
