Data type

Annual estimates were produced for oral rehydration therapy (ORT) coverage for children under 5 years of age who had diarrhea at the 5x5 km-level for 94 low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) between 2000-2017. These estimates were produced using a geo-positioned dataset created from 385 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 oral rehydration therapy percent (percent of children with diarrhea who received treatment) and number (number of children with diarrhea who received treatment)
  • CSV files of aggregated oral rehydration therapy coverage percent and number for each country at zero, first and second administrative divisions
  • Code files used to generate the estimates
