Table 4 Likelihood ratio tests of household clustering and overdispersion in household densities of Anopheles mosquitoes

From: Temporal and micro-spatial heterogeneity in the distribution of Anopheles vectors of malaria along the Kenyan coast

Parameter DFa Species Estimateb LRSb,c P- valued
Household clustering, σ H 2 1 A. gambiae 0.40 51 < 0.001
A. funestus 0.22 18 < 0.001

  1. aDegrees of freedom.
  2. bRounded to 2 significant figures.
  3. cLikelihood ratio statistic.
  4. dCalculated assuming that, under the null hypothesis (of the parameter in question not statistically significantly improving the log-likelihood of the fitted model), the LRS is χ2 distributed with the indicated degrees of freedom [71].
