Several studies have highlighted the use of serological data in detecting a reduction in malaria transmission intensity. These studies have typically used serology as an adjunct measure and no formal examination of sample size calculations for this approach has been conducted. A sample size calculator is proposed for cross-sectional surveys using data(More)
Missingness in explanatory variables requires a model for the covariates even if the interest lies only in a conditional model for the outcomes given the covariates. An incorrect specification of the models for the covariates or for the missingness mechanism may lead to biased inferences for the parameters of interest. Previously published articles either(More)
We analyze results from determinations of peak areas for a radioactive source containing several radionuclides. The statistical analysis was performed using Bayesian methods based on the usual Poisson model for observed counts. This model does not appear to be a very good assumption for the counting system under investigation, even though it is not(More)
Complex binary traits result from an intricate network of genetic and environmental factors. To aid their genetic dissection, several generalized linear models have been used to detect interaction between genes. However, it is recognized that these models have limited genetic interpretation. As an attempt to overcome this problem, we have previously(More)
