Africa Under-5 Lower Respiratory Infection Incidence, Prevalence, and Mortality Geospatial Estimates 2000-2017
Estimates were produced for lower respiratory infection (LRI) incidence, prevalence, and mortality among children under 5 at the 5x5 km-level in 52 countries in Africa between 2000-2017. These estimates were produced using data extracted from 191 household surveys that had questions about the prevalence of cough with difficulty breathing among children under 5, and allowed for subnational geolocation. The surveys include the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS), Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), World Bank, and other country‐specific surveys. Collectively, they provided 56,628 total data points, corresponding to 53,592 survey clusters and 3,036 subnational polygon boundaries.
