Table 2 Point estimates and 95% credible interval of the Bayesian Poisson regression model on number of all monthly dengue cases (DF, DHF and DSS) and covariates in Khon Kaen Province, Thailand, 2006–2016

From: Spatial and temporal patterns of dengue incidence in northeastern Thailand 2006–2016

Parameter Rate ratios
Median 2.5% 97.5%
Mean monthly rainfall (cm) 1.004 0.990 1.017
Maximum temperature (°C) 1.055 1.009 1.115
Minimum temperature (°C) 0.958 0.927 1.024
Age (years) 0.990 0.985 0.994
Gender (proportion femalea) 0.933 0.854 1.020
Density (thousands of people per km2) 0.925 0.827 1.047
  1. aHence the rate ratio is for 100% female case composition relative to 100% male case composition
