  1. All models include calendar time in years, a covariate for the effect of enhanced case finding, a random slope, and a random intercept. Each covariate in the left hand column is separately added to the model. Confidence intervals derived by spatial block bootstrap (with a radius of 1.5 degrees; see text for details)
