  1. Point estimates represented mean estimates adjusted for survey weighting. Values in brackets represent 95% confidence intervals estimated via multi-stage bootstrap with 50,000 replicates, adjusted for survey weighting. Main cost per outcome estimates (rows 2 and 4) represent total costs for sites in the sample divided by total service volume. Outcomes in rows 3 and 5 (simple average across sites) represent a simple average of the cost per dose (or DTP3) across sites in the sample. Above-site program support costs applied as a fixed mark-up on site-level costs
