It was found that the prevalence of hookworm was significantly lower among the aborigines in the area than it is among the people on the western plains of Taiwan. and hookworm rates indicated no unusual relationship with respect to sex or age.

Comparison by ethnic groups did not indicate any significant differences between Taiwanese and aborigines in the infection rates of , or hookworm. was found in aborigines only. Intestinal parasites were found in 82% of 87 aborigines and 85% of 52 Taiwanese.
