Table 4 The regression coefficient was determined to find the effects of a predictor variable on the severity of dengue cases. Since the P values are all < 0.05, therefore, the variables are significant to the model. Wald statistics identified that each factor is significant and contributes to the prediction model

From: The east coast districts are the possible epicenter of severe dengue in Sabah
