The dataset contains close proximity interactions between family members of 16 households with infants younger than 6 months, recorded for 2-5 consecutive days between March 2015 and January 2016, in Rome, Italy. Data were collected trough the use of wearable proximity sensors of the SocioPatterns platform (http://sociopatterns.org).

Contact events were recorded between 55 individuals: 16 infants, 4 siblings, 31 parents and 4 grandparents.

Each line of the dataset corresponds to a contact event recorded between two sensors (sensor 1 and sensor 2). Heading labels are the following:

  • ID_sensor1: anonymized ID of sensor 1;
  • ID_sensor2: anonymized ID of sensor 2;
  • contact_duration: duration of the contact event in seconds;
  • time: date and time of the contact event;
  • family_role_tag1: family role of individual wearing sensor 1;
  • Household: household ID;
  • family_role_tag2: family role of individual wearing sensor 2.
