Table 12 Fur Baranga: GAM point estimates, 95% CIs, LQAS result, estimated time expenditure* and cost required for data collection, by sampling design

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

Sampling design GAM point estimate (95% CI) GAM LQAS result Team days required to collect data Cost for data collection
33 × 6 design 8.1 (3.6, 12.5) Fail to reject Ho at 10% GAM threshold.
Conclude area requires intervention appropriate for 10% threshold level
8.25 $1232
67 × 3 design 6.5 (3.0, 9.9) Reject Ho at 10% GAM threshold.
Conclude area has <10% GAM prevalence
11.17 $1630
30 × 30 design 8.6 (6.5, 10.8) NA 30.00 $4606
  1. *Time expenditure results for Fur Baranga assume 8.5 hour work day.
