  • *  Estimate and upper and lower 95% CIs of the number of HBV infections in US children who were younger than 10 years. In the “base rate” scenario, estimated rates of infection are applied to the 1996 birth cohort as in Table 3. In the “low rate” scenario, estimates from the Chinatown model were used in place of estimates from the Southeast Asian model. In the “high rate” scenario, estimates from the Southeast Asian model were used in place of the Chinatown model.
