Table 7 Results for the parameter estimations for the Navrongo data for sigmoid models \(\mathcal {S}\) and \(\mathcal {S}_{RE}\), compared to the results of the original analysis [16] and a previous reanalysis [39]. In brackets, the 95%CI are given. The contamination range only exists for \(\mathcal {S}\) and \(\mathcal {S}_{RE}\). The last column indicates the increase in mortality after 100 m away from the nearest discordant household. For \(\mathcal {S}_{RE}\) this is nonlinear, hence the increase after 100 m and 200 m is reported
