Summary 

Annual estimates were produced for exclusive breastfeeding prevalence among infants under 6 months of age at the 5x5 km-level for 94 low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) between 2000 and 2019. These estimates were produced using a geo-positioned dataset created from 394 household surveys. Countries and subnational units outside of these 94 LMICs were supplemented with GBD results. This dataset includes the following:

  • GeoTIFF raster files for pixel-level estimates of exclusive breastfeeding prevalence among infants under 6 months of age for 94 LMICs
  • CSV files of aggregated for 195 countries at the national level, 94 LMICs plus GBD subnational locations at the first-level administrative divisions, and 94 LMICs at the second-level administrative divisions
  • Code files used to generate the estimates
