  1. Notes: CPR = crude proportion ratio; 95% CI, = 95% confidence interval; a, denominator = all households; b, among households owning at least one ITN; Proportions or numbers in bold = p value < 0.05 (comparing urban/peri-urban/rural areas); Assessed taking into account all the 4,811 ITNs reported; Assessed taking into account only the 3,006 ITNs observed by the surveyors.
