From: A cross-sectional study of the prevalence of intensity of infection with Schistosoma japonicumin 50 irrigated and rain-fed villages in Samar Province, the Philippines

Estimated infection status Observed classification Posterior probability of being in the observed
infection class given the estimated infection
