  1. r Fshows the number of positive samples from the fallen stock, r Ashows the number of positive samples from the abattoir survey, n Fshows the number of samples tested in the fallen stock and n Athe number of samples tested in the abattoir survey. LogOR (log (odds fallen stock/odds abattoir survey)), variance of the logOR (calculated as 1/r A+ 1/n A+ 1/r F+ 1/n F) with 0.5 continuity correction added to all denominators for those countries with one 0 in any of the columns (r F, r A, n F, n A), adult sheep population by country and country-specific covariates inputted into the meta-regression model: "repreFS" (proportion of the adult sheep population sampled by the FS), "repreAS" (proportion of the adult sheep population sampled by the AS) and "test" (proportion of ELISA tests over all samples tested). N/A under the logOR and variance headings show those countries with zero counts in both surveys.
