The degree to which diarrheal disese clustered within households and within villages among preschool age children was examined using data from our population-based prevalence surveys undertaken in Malawi, Zambia, Indonesia, and Nepal over the past decade.
The design effect for each cluster survey was calculated using the diarrhea prevalence, the cluster sizes, and the magnitude of diarrhea clustering within the sampling unit (villages).
A recently developed statistical method, alternating logistic regression, was used to estimate disease associations within households of up to nine preschool age children residing within villages of up to 589 such children.
