Table 5 Results from the generalized linear mixed models examining the associations of bed net use with bed availability, net availability, number of rooms, and their interactions, using the data from all houses, and those from houses with enough bed nets

From: Sleeping arrangement and house structure affect bed net use in villages along Lake Victoria

Variables in the final model Coefficient Standard error z-value p-value
All houses (n = 95)     
   Bed availability (m2/person) 3.90 2.25 1.73 0.083
   Net availability (m2/person) 0.78 0.31 2.52 0.011*
   Number of rooms 1.32 0.52 2.55 0.011*
   Bed availability × number of rooms -1.23 0.57 -2.16 0.031*
Houses with enough nets (n = 80)     
   Bed availability 10.31 4.37 2.36 0.018*
   Number of rooms 3.32 0.96 3.47 <0.001*
   Bed availability × number of rooms -2.85 0.85 -3.36 <0.001*
  1. Bed availability was included in the first model as a random variable.
  2. *Statistically significant at p < 0.05 level.
