Résumé
This paper discusses the falsifiable implications of the heterogeneous mixing model of infectious disease. It is shown that the model implies a proportional hazard restriction across the set of susceptible survival functions of the subpopulations. Using this implication, the testable restrictions and identification of the model are discussed when subpopulations are observable as well as unobservable.
