coverage estimator

A single coverage estimator for use in SQUEAC, SLEAC, and other CMAM coverage assessments

A new single coverage estimator is proposed that is a measure of overall programme performance. It can be used with existing survey tools and calculated using previous coverage data. Uncertainty remains regarding the mean length of an untreated SAM episode (included in the calculation); work is ongoing in this regard. The authors recommend the proposed single coverage estimator should be used in preference to using either the point or period coverage estimators.
