Odds ratio calculation was applied to measure the strength of risk factors. with Mantel-Haenzel formula for significaney test (ct.< 5%). The findings showed that the intensity of lighting of living room (OR= 5.16)and bed room (OR = 6.24); and glassĀ­ roof-tile (OR = 5.22) on the bed room were identified as risk factors for pulmono tuberculosis incident.
