Annual estimates were produced for anemia prevalence in women of reproductive age (15-49 years) at the 5x5 km-level for 82 low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) between 2000 and 2019. These estimates were produced using a geo-positioned dataset created from 218 household surveys. Countries and subnational units outside of these 82 LMICs were supplemented with GBD results.

This dataset includes the following:

  • GeoTIFF raster files for pixel-level estimates of anemia prevalence in women of reproductive age (15-49 years) for 82 LMICs
  • CSV files of aggregated for 195 countries at the national level, 82 LMICs plus GBD subnational locations at the first-level administrative divisions, and 82 LMICs at the second-level administrative divisions
  • Code files used to generate the estimates
