dc.description.abstractA section of the mixed tribal population of the Singhbhum district, Bihar, India, is declared malaria epidemic zone. The tribal population of several generations is known to be suffering from malaria. A survey based on cross-sectional data analysis, was conducted on the mixed tribal population for one month. The purpose of this study was to investigate the health status using collected blood samples. The main focus is on the comparative roles of the defense mechanism and vitality factor of the human system in context to the malarial infection. By gradual elimination of the blood parameters by statistical analysis, the vitalityparameters probing malarial endemicity are assessed with a view to predicting the epidemic. The main findings from this survey are (i) of the selected twenty two parameters of blood, albumin, total cholesterol, total protein, β-Globulin, γ-Globulin, Inmuno globulin G seem to have some predictive capacity with respect to the malarial endemicity of the tribal people and (ii) Categorical variables like blood group and sex are comparatively less important for prediction of malaria.
