Table 1 Larval habitat proximity indices calculated for houses where sampling occurred for Anopheles mosquitoes

From: Explaining variation in adult Anopheles indoor resting abundance: the relative effects of larval habitat proximity and insecticide-treated bed net use

Proximity index Measured at
Distance to nearest habitata NA
Number of habitatsa within n metres 50, 100, 300, 500, 1000 m
Maximum probabilityb of a habitat within n metres 50, 100, 300, 500, 1000 m
Mean probabilityb of a habitat within n metres 50, 100, 300, 500, 1000 m
Minimum probabilityb of a habitat within n metres 50, 100c
  1. NA not applicable
  2. aHabitat locations were predicted using a random forest model, converting probabilities to presence and absence based on an empirically derived threshold of 0.020
  3. bProbability of larval habitat presence was predicted using a random forest model
  4. cThe minimum probability of a habitat within a distance of ≥300 m of a house was 0 for all houses, and therefore not used in the analysis
