Summary 

Estimates were produced for under-5 stunting, wasting, and underweight prevalence at the 5x5 km-level in 51 countries in Africa between 2000-2015. These estimates were produced using individual-level height, weight, and age data for children under 5 and geographical locations from household survey series including the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS), Mulitple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), Living Standards Measurement Study (LSMS), and Core Welfare Indicators Questionnaire Survey (CWIQ). This dataset includes both GeoTIFF raster files for pixel-level estimates of under-5 stunting, wasting, and underweight prevalence, along with relative annualized rates of change for each, and CSV files of aggregated estimates for each country at the first and second administrative divisions.

Code files used to generate the estimates are available online.
