All models adjusted for gender, province, wealth, ethnicity, age, frequency of raw pork consumption, raw beef consumption and fermented pork sausage consumption. Model 1; Diagnostic cut-off in Trichinella ES ELISA  =  standardised ratio ≥1.0; Model 2, Diagnostic cut-off in Trichinella ES ELISA  =  standardised ratio ≥1.2; Model 3, Diagnostic cut-off in Trichinella ES ELISA  =  standardised ratio ≥1.4. In descending order population characteristics are: Gender; female (referent), male. Province; Oudomxay (referent), Luangprabang, Huaphan, Xiengkhuang. Wealth status; most poor (referent), very poor, poor, less poor, least poor. Ethnicity; Lao-Tai (referent), Mon-Khmer, Hmong-Mien. Age category; 6–11 years (referent), 12–19 years, 20–34 years, 35–49 years, ≥50 years. Raw pork consumption; does not eat (referent), weekly, monthly, every few months, infrequent. Raw beef consumption; does not eat (referent), weekly, monthly, every few months, infrequent. Raw fermented pork consumption; does not eat (referent), weekly, monthly, every few months, infrequent (refer to data in Table S1).
