Estimates were produced for under‐5 mortality (the probability of death before reaching age 5) and neonatal mortality (probability of death within first month of life) for each pixel cell (approximately 5x5 kilometer (km)) in 46 countries in Africa for 1998-2002, 2003-2007, 2008-2012, and 2013-2017. These estimates were produced using data on child mortality and geographical locations from censuses and several household survey series, including the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS), Unicef Mulitple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), and other country‐specific surveys. This dataset includes both GeoTIFF raster files for pixel-level estimates of probability of death and CSV files of aggregated estimates for each country at the first and second administrative divisions.
