Table 1 Proportion of households with at least one observed event of critical times for handwashing, by duration of observations

From: Impact of duration of structured observations on measurement of handwashing behavior at critical times

Variables Long observation Short observation P-value*
  (n = 49) (n = 50)  
Proportion of households with at least one observed event of a critical time 100 96 0.061
Proportion of households with at least one observed food preparation event 78 34 0.001
Proportion of households with at least one observed food serving event 78 50 0.120
Proportion of households with at least one observed eating event 84 20 0.000
Proportion of households with at least one observed feeding event 92 58 0.001
Proportion of households with at least one observed defecation event 6 0 0.057
Proportion of households with at least one observed event of cleaning a child who had defecated 45 8 0.001
  1. *Estimation of significance of difference between long and short observation households takes start time of observation into account.
