  1. aOR: odds ratio
  2. bAIC: Akaike information criterion. The smaller the AIC the better the model performance
  3. cMean I: Mean value during the month prior to blood sample collection
  4. dMean II: Mean value during the month of collection and the previous month
  5. eMean III: Mean value during the month of collection and the two previous months
  6. fThe main transmission season of malaria is from June to August
