Table 3 Estimated episode durations, incidence corrections factors, and annual caseloads for moderate and severe wasting. Original caseload refers to the value estimated with k = 1.6 and context-specific caseload refers to the value estimated using the model-derived k-value

From: A mathematical model to estimate the incidence of child wasting in Yemen

  Original average duration of episode (months) Context-specific average duration of episode (months) Original k-value Context-specific k-value Original annual caseload Context-specific annual caseload
