Figure

Estimated minimum proportion of the population, by age, with laboratory-confirmed classical dengue, showing exact 95% binomial confidence intervals. A) Fitting a logistic regression model (not shown) to the absolute proportion produced a significant age estimate: McFadden R2 = 0.762, χ2 = 5,196.13, df = 1, p<0.001. B) Relative risk, by age, of having classical dengue after primary infection. Black circles, observed; line, model fit. See text for details of statistical analysis.
