Age-based mixing matrices for participants’ total duration of encounters with listed individuals. Values are the mean of participants’ total (weighted) duration of encounters with listed individuals by age of participant and contact for male participants (left panel) and female participants (right panel). 95 % confidence intervals are shown in parentheses.
