Table 4 Pearson’s correlation coefficients between regional sero-prevalence (ages 2–10 years) and all-age incidence rates for clinical malaria and Pf infection. Correlation estimates are based on data from the West Coast Region (WCR) and Upper River Region (URR) in July and December 2013. Correlations excluding data from URR December 2013 are shown in brackets

From: Antibody responses to a suite of novel serological markers for malaria surveillance demonstrate strong correlation with clinical and parasitological infection across seasons and transmission settings in The Gambia
