Table 10 Fur Baranga: mortality rate estimates, 95% CIs, and sample size (total person days at risk: PDAR), by sampling design

From: Precision, time, and cost: a comparison of three sampling designs in an emergency setting

Indicator Sampling design
  33 × 6 design 67 × 3 design 30 × 30 design
Crude mortality rate* 0.67 (0.00, 1.93) n = 179,498 PDAR 0.10 (0.00, 1.28) n = 193,602 PDAR 0.53 (0.34, 0.72) n = 659,362 PDAR
Under 5 mortality rate* 1.17 (0.00, 4.50) n = 42,804 PDAR 0.23 (0.00, 2.50) n = 43,952 PDAR 0.86 (0.32, 1.40) n = 174,988 PDAR
  1. *Reported as deaths/10,000/day and calculated using a recall period of 164 days for the household census information.
  2. Lower bound of CI truncated at 0 due to low mortality estimate and wide CI.
