From: High prevalence of Babesia microti in small mammals in Beijing

Variable OR (95% CI) P-value
Altitude (m)  ≤ 40 1  
40–400 2.293 (1.331–3.951) 0.003
 > 400 1.071 (0.476–2.410) 0.868

Age Pubertal 1  
Adult 1.976 (1.114–3.504) 0.020
Ecological habitat Residential 1  
Shrub 4.505 (2.715–7.476)  < 0.001
Mixed forest 1.079 (0.508–2.291) 0.844
Broad-leaved forest 3.406 (2.057–5.638)  < 0.001
cropland 2.122 (1.146–3.927) 0.017
  1. This table shows that the altitude of 40–400 m, adult life stage, and ecological habitats of shrub areas, broad-leaved forest, and cropland were risk factors associated with the B. microti infection based on the multivariate logistic regression
  2. OR odd ratio, CI confidence interval
