  1. aAdjusted for environmental capital, survey period, urban/rural residence, the number of people in a household, cleaned containers, fumigated inside or outside the house, and the total number of containers. Environmental capital was derived from principal components factor analysis and included: number of rooms in the household; presence of electricity, running water, a television, a landline telephone, cable, trash disposal, and sewer system; and absence of a water well and pit latrine
