Table 1 Description of the models compared in the ten-fold cross-validation exercise

From: Large-scale drivers of malaria and priority areas for prevention and control in the Brazilian Amazon region using a novel multi-pathogen geospatial model

Models Assumptions Parameters
1 – No correlation No spatial and no pathogen correlation ρ = 0; Φ > > 0
2 – Spatial Accounts for spatial correlation but not for pathogen correlation ρ = 0; Φ estimated
3 – Pathogen Accounts for pathogen correlation but not for spatial correlation ρ is estimated; Φ > > 0
4 – Pathogen + Spatial Accounts for pathogen and spatial correlation ρ and Φ are both estimated
