Annual estimates were produced for child growth failure (CGF) among children younger than 5 years of age at the 5x5 km-level for 105 low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) between 2000 and 2019. These estimates were produced using geo-positioned data from 460 household surveys, including the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS), Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), and other country‐specific surveys. Countries and subnational units outside of these 105 LMICs were supplemented with GBD results.

This dataset includes the following:

  • GeoTIFF raster files for pixel-level estimates for 105 LMICs
  • CSV files of aggregated estimates for 195 countries at the national level, 105 LMICs plus GBD subnational locations at the admin 1 level, and 105 LMICs at the admin 2 level
  • Code files used to generate the estimates
