Data type
  • Subnationally representative

Estimates were produced for diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus (DPT) vaccine coverage and dropout for children ages 12-23 months at the 5x5 km-level in 52 countries in Africa between 2000-2016. These estimates were produced using data from 183 population-based household surveys conducted in Africa between 2000 and 2016 that included dose-specific information on DPT coverage (from vaccine cards or maternal recall in the absence of vaccine cards) and subnational geographical location for children ages 12-59 months.

This dataset includes the following:

  • GeoTIFF raster files for pixel-level estimates of DPT1 coverage (the proportion of children who received one or more doses of DPT), DPT3 coverage (three or more doses), and relative and absolute DPT1-3 dropout
  • CSV files of aggregated estimates for each country at the first and second administrative divisions
  • Code files used to generate the estimates
