Africa Child Mortality 1998 to 2017

$179 / year

This dataset provides estimates of the probability of child death from 1998 to 2017 for each country in Africa at the first administrative divisions.

Complexity

The dataset was produced from estimates for under‐5 mortality (the probability of death before reaching age 5) and neonatal mortality (probability of death within the first month of life) for each pixel cell (approximately 5×5 kilometer (km)) in 46 countries in Africa for 1998-2002, 2003-2007, 2008-2012, and 2013-2017. These estimates were produced using data on child mortality and geographical locations from censuses and several household survey series, including the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS), UNICEF Mulitple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), and other country‐specific surveys.
