Table 5 Factors statistically and significantly associated with PZQ swallowing in multivariable logistic regression analysis among SAC in the sampled districts of Ethiopia, 2019 (n=5679)

From: Praziquantel treatment coverage among school age children against Schistosomiasis and associated factors in Ethiopia: a cross-sectional survey, 2019

  1. COR Crude Odds ratio, AOR Adjusted Odds Ratio, CI Confidence interval, *= P value < 0.05, ** < 0.01
  2. To check the classifying or prediction performance of variables in the final fitted model, ROC curve was done. Based on the Hosmer and Lemeshow criteria, variables in the fitted model were predicting the acceptance or swallowing of PZQ by 77.62%.
  3. This means 77.62% of PZQ swallowing among SAC was determined by age of SAC, gender of SAC and school attendance or enrollment status of SAC (Fig. 5).
