The Child Growth Failure Visualization is an interactive data tool that shows levels and trends in growth failure at birth and in children under 5, both past and projected from 1990 to 2030. The tool also demonstrates how cases of child growth failure (stunting, wasting, and underweight) have changed due to contributing factors including population growth, Socio-demographic Index, and unsafe sanitation from 1990 to 2016 and 2000 to 2016.

This dataset contains the input data used to produce the estimates visualized by the tool. Each file includes information about how the input sources were used and relevant metadata about the sources as suggested in the Guidelines for Accurate and Transparent Health Estimates Reporting (GATHER).
