Title Altitudinal cumulative distribution of malaria cases (Debre Zeit)
Downloaded 102 times
Description Yearly cumulative distribution of malaria cases (P. falciparum) with altitude for each year from 1994 to 2004 for the study region in Ethiopia. Cases are aggregated for the transmission season as explained in the Supplement of the paper.

Title Time series of mean temperatures (Ethiopia)
Downloaded 54 times
Description Monthly time series of mean temperatures. Four meteorological stations in Ethiopia situated in close proximity to the study areas were selected. Monthly averages of daily minimum and maximum temperature data for the stations in Ethiopia were obtained from the Ethiopian National Meteorological Agency (NMA). The four climate stations in Ethiopia (namely Addis Ababa (Bole), Addis Ababa (Obs), Adama and Debre Zeit) were selected based on their proximity to Debre Zeit town (within 50 km) and their high correlation with Debre Zeit’s station readings. Missing data were filled by the lagged 5 year climatology (average for the same month in the preceding five years). Data for the four stations were then averaged for the two variables, and monthly mean temperature were generated by taking the average of the monthly minimum and maximum temperature.

Title Discretized malaria cases (Debre Zeit)
Downloaded 47 times
Description The monthly epidemiological data (falciparum malaria cases) from 159 kebeles in Ethiopia were discretized into a set of finite levels by putting all zeros in the lowest level and then dividing the remaining data into observed quantiles of cases per capita. Three levels are considered here: no cases (0), cases below the median (1), and cases above the median (2). These format of the data are used in the grouping algorithm applied in Figure 1 to identify groups of administrative units (kebeles) with similar temporal dynamics. See Method and associated references in the Supplementary Information of the paper.

Title Time series of mean temperatures (Colombia)
Downloaded 29 times
Description A monthly time series of mean temperatures was obtained by averaging data from a number of meteorological stations. Nine meteorological stations in Colombia, situated in close proximity to the study areas were selected. Monthly mean temperature for the stations in Colombia was obtained from the Colombian Institute for Hydrology and Meteorology (IDEAM). Five stations in the East and four in the West were selected after removing those with inconsistent and sparse data, and restricting them to be within 500 and 2500 masl. We filled the gaps in the climate time series with the 10 year climatology (average for the same month in the preceding 10 or 15 years depending on data availability).

Title Discretized malaria cases (Antioquia)
Downloaded 24 times
Description The monthly epidemiological data (falciparum malaria cases) from 77 municipalities were discretized into a set of finite levels by putting all zeros in the lowest level and then dividing the remaining data into observed quantiles of cases per capita. Three levels are considered here: no cases (0), cases below the median (1), and cases above the median (2). These format of the data are used in the grouping algorithm applied in Figure 1 to identify groups of municipalities with similar temporal dynamics. See Method and associated references in the Supplementary Information of the paper.
