Data type
  • Subnationally representative

Annual estimates were produced for child growth failure (CGF), expressed as stunting, wasting, and underweight prevalence for children under 5 years of age, at the 5x5 km-level for 105 low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) between 2000-2017. These estimates were produced using a geo-positioned dataset created from 460 household surveys. Survey sources used include the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) and UNICEF Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) series, and other country‐specific surveys.

This dataset includes the following:

  • GeoTIFF raster files for pixel-level estimates of under-5 stunting, wasting, and underweight prevalence
  • CSV files of aggregated stunting, wasting and underweight prevalence for each country at zero, first and second administrative divisions
  • Code files used to generate the estimates
