Summary 

Annual estimates were produced for mortality probability and death counts in three age groups – neonates (0-28 days old), infants (under-1 year old), and under-5 (0-5 years old) – at the 5x5 km-level in 99 low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) between 2000-2017. These estimates were produced using data on child mortality and geographical locations from censuses and several household survey series. Survey sources used include the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) and UNICEF Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) series, and other country‐specific surveys.

This dataset includes the following:

  • GeoTIFF raster files for pixel-level estimates of mortality probability and death counts in 3 age bins
  • CSV files of aggregated mortality probability and death count estimates for each country at the zero, first, and second administrative divisions, by age group
  • Code files used to generate the estimates
