|Risk factor||No. case-patients||Proportion of case-patients (pi)||aOR||PAR, %||95% CI||Estimated no. community case-patients||95% CrI|
|Dog <6 mo of age||48||0.057||2.1||2.9||0.3–4.8||5,000||500–11,500|
|Dog ≥6 mo of age||394||0.47||1.2||–|
|No domestic chickens||783||0.926||Reference|
|Chickens <6 mo of age||18||0.021||12.4||1.9||0.9–2.9||3,500||1,000–7,000|
|Chickens ≥6 mo of age||45||0.053||1.7||–|
*PAR, population-attributable risk; CI, confidence interval; CrI, credible interval.
†Calculated from adjusted odds ratios (aOR) derived from the final multivariable logistic regression model.
