Annual 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 for 94 low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) between 2000-2019. These estimates were produced using geo-positioned data from 466 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 94 LMICs were supplemented with GBD results.

This dataset includes the following:

  • GeoTIFF raster files for pixel-level estimates for 94 LMICs
  • CSV files of aggregated estimates for 195 countries at the national level, 94 LMICs plus GBD subnational locations at the admin 1 level, and 94 LMICs at the admin 2 level
  • Code files used to generate the estimates
