Table 2 Validation statistics for spatio-temporal model for mf prevalence and spatial model for ICT-based prevalence

From: Modelling the distribution and transmission intensity of lymphatic filariasis in sub-Saharan Africa prior to scaling up interventions: integrated use of geostatistical and mathematical modelling

Model Correlation Mean Error Mean Absolute Error Coverage percentage of 95 % CI
mf 0.69 1.89 % 4.64 % 70.93 %
ICT 0.86 0.06 % 6.51 % 52.83 %a, 77.49 %b
  1. For the ICT data, coverage percentages are presented for the actual intervalsa and for intervals where lower limits turned out lower than 0.01 % those were replaced by 0b
