Correlation coefficients and rainfall for Polonnaruwa District. Three month centred moving average of logarithmically transformed geometric mean monthly rainfall (originally in mm per month, calculated over the period January 1971 to December 2005) (blue line on right vertical axis), its derivative representing change in logarithmically transformed rainfall per month (green line on left vertical axis) and the Fisher transformed correlation coefficient (red line on left vertical axis) between malaria and rainfall at a lag of two months, found in seasonal inter-annual analysis (see methods) for Polonnaruwa District.
