Summary 

Annual estimates were produced for adult male circumcision (MC) prevalence and the number of circumcised and uncircumcised males ages 15-49 at the 5x5 km-level for 38 countries in sub-Saharan Africa between 2000 and 2017. These estimates were produced using a geo-positioned dataset created from 109 household surveys. Survey sources used include the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS), AIDS Indicator Survey (AIS), Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), Core Welfare Indicators Questionnaire Survey (CWIQ), Population-based HIV Impact Assessment Survey (PHIA), and other country‐specific surveys.

This dataset includes the following:

  • GeoTIFF raster files for pixel-level estimates of male circumcision (MC) prevalence and the number of circumcised and uncircumcised males ages 15-49
  • CSV files of aggregated circumcision estimates for each country at zero, first and second administrative divisions
  • Code files used to generate the estimates
