Summary 

Estimates were produced for exclusive breastfeeding (EBF) prevalence among infants under 6 months of age at the 5x5 km-level in 49 countries in Africa between 2000-2017. These estimates were produced using data extracted from 188 household surveys that had complete records of questions relating to infant feeding and geographical information. The surveys include the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS), Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), and country‐specific and other multinational surveys.

This dataset includes the following:

  • GeoTIFF raster files for pixel-level estimates of EBF prevalence
  • CSV files of aggregated estimates for each country at the zero, first, and second administrative divisions
  • Code files used to generate the estimates
