A study based on the examination of eight sputum specimens from the eligible using uniform techniques was conducted with the following objectives: 1. To estimate the yield of cases from additional sputum specimens examined. 2. To work out correction factors to be applied to estimates of prevalence based on small number of sputum specimens to obtain a better estimate of the prevalence of bacteriologically confirmed disease in the community.
