Table 4 Results of logistic mixed effects model analysis to compare P. falciparum malaria infection between the intervention (repellent and LLIN) and control (LLIN only)

From: Effect of combining mosquito repellent and insecticide treated net on malaria prevalence in Southern Ethiopia: a cluster-randomised trial

Variables Adjusted odds ratio (OR) 95% Confidence interval for OR P-value
