<p>CI = Confidence interval.</p><p>PR = Prevalence ratio.</p>*<p>Generalized estimating equations (GEE) with household as the clustering variable and using robust sandwich-type standard errors. Best-fitting models for residents living within 100 meters of a tongue-positive pig included the following variables; 1) EITB LLGP; age and number of pigs raised within the house, 2) EITB r33; number of pigs raised within the house only, 3) ELISA coproantigen; age only.</p
