A national serosurvey was conducted in Mexico from March to October 1986 to identify predictors of dengue transmission and target areas at high risk of severe annual epidemics.
A total of 3,408 households in 70 localities with populations less than 50,000 were randomly sampled, and serology was obtained from one subject under age 25 years in each household.
When comparing exposure and infection frequencies across the 70 communities, the authors found that median temperature during the rainy season was the strongest predictor of dengue infection, with an adjusted fourfold risk in the comparison of 30oC with 17oC.
