National-level mean monthly PfPR6–59mo predictions, plotted alongside temporally variable predictor values. The box plot rectangles indicate the first to third quartiles (interquartile range), with the median shown as the dark line inside the box. Vertical lines correspond to the minimum and maximum values. Specified lags indicate the time points that were selected by the model as explanatory variables of PfPR6–59mo. A time lag of 0 indicates that the covariate values in the concurrent month were predictive of PfPR6–59mo, while a time lag of 3 indicates that the covariate value 3 months prior to the PfPR6–59mo prediction was predictive of PfPR6–59mo
