Table 2 Model of binary logistic regression using backward stepwise method of the hypothesized risk factors with the frequency of Theileria sp. infection

From: A comparative study of single Theileria lestoquardi and mixed infections with Theileria ovis

Variables β SE β P-value Adjusted odds ratio 95% CI

  1. β: logistic coefficients. SE: standard error, CI: confidence interval. Odds ratio of sheep breed: exotic sheep were 2.9 (CI 1.66–5.14) and 12.9 (CI 1.65–101.19) times as likely to be Theileria-positive as indigenous and cross-bred sheep, respectively
