It is part of efforts of every passionate government in Africa to reduce, if not eliminate morbidity and mortality due to malaria being transmitted by female anopheles mosquito. Part of this struggle is the malaria indicator survey annually conducted by the Federal Bureau of Statistics (FBS) in Nigeria. It therefore important to communicate community based investigation and communication of entomological data vital for malaria control using appropriate statistical tools.

The specific objective is to determine which particular specie of such Anopheles mosquitoes are most abundant and which of the human settlements requires most intervention due to high prevalence of such Anopheles.
