aN is the total sample size that has data (i.e., does not include missing data).

bParticipants self-reported either having or not having diarrhea in the past 7 days.

cOnly persons ≥1 year of age had stool testing for STH because there was no WHO guidance for STH treatment in children <1 year of age (Montresor et al. 2003; WHO 2017a).

*Age group categories included PSAC 1–4 years old, SAC 5–14 years old, and adults 15 years old. This variable was only used in the diarrhea analysis.

Age/sex categories included PSAC 1–4 years old, SAC 5–14 years old, WCBA 15–44 years old, and other adults 15 years old. This variable was only used in the STH analysis.

SES variables were determined by factor analysis of 18 variables concerning family member possessions (including possession of animals and animal types), education level of the mother, monthly household income, and household wall construction material. The analysis generated two factors: the first dealing with household possessions, mother's education, monthly income, and wall construction, and the second dealing with household possession of animals.
