Indicator Numerator Denominator
Ownership
 Proportion of households in the survey with at least one ITN (P1) Number of households owning at least one ITN Number of households in the survey
 Proportion of households with sufficient access to ITN (P2) Number of households owning at least one ITN for every two household members Number of households in the survey
 Proportion of population with access to ITN within the household (P3) Potential number of household members protected by the ITN (i.e., number of ITN owned multiplied by two), or number of de facto household members in the household, whichever was the lowest Population in the survey
 Proportion of households with at least one ITN for every two people among households owning any ITN (P7) Number of households owning at least one ITN for every two household members Number of households owning at least one ITN
Intra-ownership gap, the proportion of households owning less than one ITN for every two household members, is calculated as 1-P7
Use
 Proportion of population sleeping under an ITN the previous night (P4) Number of household members who slept under an ITN the night before the survey Population in the survey
 Proportion of children under 5 years sleeping under an ITN the previous night (P5) Number of children under 5 years who slept under an ITN the night before the survey Number of children under five years in surveyed households
 Proportion of pregnant women sleeping under an ITN the previous night (P6) Number of pregnant women who slept under an ITN the night before the survey Number of pregnant women in surveyed households
 Proportion of population sleeping under an ITN the previous night among those with access (P8) Number of household members who slept under an ITN the night before the survey Total number of people with access to an ITN, calculated as the sum of all access (P3) values
Behavioural gap, the proportion of household members who did not sleep under an ITN despite having access to one, is calculated as 1-P8
