Table 2 Comparison of the Combined Scenario B models

From: Combining different diagnostic studies of lymphatic filariasis for risk mapping in Papua New Guinea: a predictive model from microfilaraemia and antigenaemia prevalence surveys

Scenario B Model functions MDA interaction Both pre- and post-MDA

  1. 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
