Table 2 Parasitemia across the three age groups in the study parishes, this table gives a measure of malaria prevalence across the parishes by microscopy

From: Age-dependent carriage of alleles and haplotypes of Plasmodium falciparum sera5, eba-175, and csp in a region of intense malaria transmission in Uganda
