  1. Regression coefficient estimates are averages of models within 6 AICc scores of the most supported models. Estimates with confidence intervals non-overlapping with zero are highlighted in bold. The standard deviation of the intercept denotes variability in the random intercept among the five (Karatu and Monduli) and four (Babati) villages
