  • Subnationally representative

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 2000-2017. These estimates were produced using geo-positioned data from 466 household surveys. Survey sources 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 diarrhea prevalence, incidence, and diarrhea-related mortality
  • CSV files of aggregated under-5 diarrhea prevalence, incidence, and diarrhea-related mortality for each country at zero, first and second administrative divisions
  • Code files used to generate the estimates
