  1. Clustering of xerophthalmia within households and villages.

    Article - En anglais

    The clustering of xerophthalmia within households and villages was estimated among preschool age children using data from studies conducted in Malawi, Zambia, Indonesia and Nepal over the past decade.

    Pairwise odds ratios (OR) were used to measure the magnitude of clustering.

    This OR measures the risk of xerophthalmia for a preschool child given that another randomly chosen preschool child from the same household (or same village but different household) had xerophthalmia, relative to the risk if that randomly chosen preschool child did not have xerophthalmia.

    Village pairwise OR ranged from 1.2 in Malawi to 2.2 in Nepal.
