From: Spatial patterns of childhood diarrhea in Ethiopia: data from Ethiopian demographic and health surveys (2000, 2005, and 2011)

Fig. 8

Most likely and secondary clusters of childhood diarrhea in Ethiopia, 2000, 2005, and 2011. The bright red colors (rings) indicate the most statistically significant spatial windows which contain primary clusters of diarrhea. Though the biggest spatial windows (in right and left panels) extended beyond the study area, they do not contain any data outside the boundary. Because by default the spatial window centered enumeration area (cluster number) with the highest number of cases to draw the ring radius. Interpretation: Childhoods within the spatial window (cluster) have higher risk of diarrhea than childhoods outside the spatial window
