Table 11 Habila: 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* 0.23 (0.00, 0.85) n = 132,048 PDAR 0.31 (0.00, 1.83) n = 160,020 PDAR 0.18 (0.05, 0.31) n = 626,640 PDAR
Under 5 mortality rate* 0.27 (0.00, 1.55) n = 37,128 PDAR 0.49 (0.00, 4.25) n = 41,160 PDAR 0.36 (0.05, 0.66) n = 169,260 PDAR
  1. *Reported as deaths/10,000/day and calculated using a recall period of 168 days for the household census information.
  2. Lower bound of CI truncated at 0 due to low mortality estimate and wide CI.
