Participants’ total (weighted) number of listed encounters by type of contact individual. Boxplots for participants' total number of listed encounters by known/unknown contacts for male (left) and female (right) participants (top panel), household/non-household contacts for male (left) and female (right) participants (middle panel), and by household size, known/unknown contacts, and location of contact (Home/Outside) for male (left) and female (right) participants (bottom panel). Young men and women aged 30–49 years reported many more encounters with listed people than other participants. For young men, the majority are non-household members. For women, about half involved household members. In general, the number of encounters with known individuals increases with household size. Raking weights are used to reduce the effects of sample bias
