  • Subnationally representative

Estimates were produced for the prevalence and incidence of diarrhea and diarrhea-related mortality among children younger than 5 years of age at the 5x5 km-level in 52 countries in Africa between 2000-2015. These estimates were produced using data on diarrhea and geographical locations from censuses, several household survey series, including the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) and Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), and other country‐specific surveys.

This dataset includes the following:

  • GeoTIFF raster files for pixel-level estimates of diarrhea prevalence, incidence of severe diarrheal episodes, diarrhea-related mortality, annualized rates of change for severe incidence and diarrheal mortality, and the probability that a unit will reach GAPPD goals for the reduction of incidence and mortality for given years
  • CSV files of aggregated estimates for each country at the first and second administrative divisions
  • Code files used to generate the estimates
