BACKGROUND Many factors have been associated with circulation of the dengue fever virus and vector, although the dynamics of transmission are not yet fully understood. The aim of this work is to estimate the spatial distribution of the risk of dengue fever in an area of continuous dengue occurrence. METHODS This is a spatial population-based case-control(More)
Dengue fever is a major public health problem worldwide, caused by any of four virus (DENV-1, DENV-2, DENV-3 and DENV-4; Flaviviridae: Flavivirus), transmitted by Aedes aegypti mosquito. Reducing the levels of infestation by A. aegypti is one of the few current strategies to control dengue fever. Entomological indicators are used by dengue national control(More)
This study reviews articles on case-control studies in which the cases were classified in two or more types. Application of multinomial models and their adequacy for case-control studies are discussed. Among the available multinomial adjustments, we argue that the polytomous logistic model is the most suitable for obtaining epidemiological measures of risk(More)
