|Parameter||Estimate||Standard error||χ2 value||p value|
|Error term associated with TB prevalence‡||0.150||0.056||7.229||0.0071|
†In this statistical model, the constant term represents the rate of TB by district.
‡If the error term is statistically significant, it indicates that there are differences in the prevalence rate of TB at the district level (but does not identify which districts are different and the degree of difference).
