  1. RR = Relative Risk.
  2. #Corrected for malaria endemic country of birth.
  3. $Additionally corrected for work status (long term traveller, rotator, etc.).
  4. *Knowlegde was examined by multiple choice question on the maximum incubation time of Plasmodium falciparum. The denominators for questions on considering malaria as a threat and inclination to take anti-mosquito measures vary, as answers reporting 'neutral' were not used for analysis.
