Spatio-temporal modeling of sparse geostatistical malaria sporozoite rate data using a zero inflated binomial model.

Abstract

The proportion of malaria vectors harboring the infectious stage of the parasite (the sporozoite rates) is an important component of measures of malaria transmission. Variation in time and/or space in sporozoite rates contribute substantially to spatio-temporal variation in transmission. However, because most vectors test negative for sporozoites… (More)
