The dependence of the basic reproduction number R0 on several characteristics of the susceptibility profile vector of each (E, V) pair considering H1N1 strains isolated in 2009: (a) skewness of the SPV; (b) standard deviation of the SPV; (c) coefficient of variation of the SPV; (d) number of susceptibility sub-populations, m. Only epidemic pairs (E, V) with 1 < R0 < 7 and m > 1 are plotted.
