 Combined Scenario B models evaluated, with their corresponding RSE and AIC values. The y variable represents the predicted antigen estimates, while x is the Mf prevalence as the independent variable. δ is the presence of MDA while N is the rounds of MDA (represented by the independent variable i). The number in bold represent the lowest AIC value from all models in this scenario
