Annual estimates were produced for overweight prevalence for children under 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 a geo-positioned dataset created from 420 household 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 of under-5 overweight prevalence for 105 LMICs
  • CSV files of aggregated for 195 countries at the national level, 105 LMICs plus GBD subnational locations at the first-level administrative divisions, and 105 LMICs at the second level administrative divisions
  • Code files used to generate the estimates
