Study data were collected and managed using REDCap [32]. All statistical tests were performed using SAS software (SAS Institute Inc., Cary, NC, USA). Asset-based wealth quintiles [33] were calculated using the entire MDSS, of which our sample was a subset. AD prevalence was calculated using the total number of individuals in each age group for the denominator for that age group; clustering by region or village was not taken into account. Missing data were eliminated using pairwise deletion and the updated denominators are listed in Table 1. The corresponding 95% confidence intervals were calculated using a binomial test. We used nonparametric tests including the Mann-Whitney U Test and the Kruskall-Wallis test to analyze IDQoL and DFI scores, and the Spearman’s rank order correlation coefficient to measure associations between ordinal and continuous variables.
