Table 8 Difference in Predictive Accuracy of models for Mean Average Error (MAE), Root Mean Squared Error (RMSE), and the Coefficient of Determination (R2) between Random Forest Model (Ref) and Linear Mixed-Effects Model for each Health Unit Level and Each Response Scenario. Scenario 1 represents the time in minutes walking to the nearest health facility, while scenario 2 represents the time in minutes reduced to health facility using a bicycle instead of walking
