Poverty Mapping Project: Global Subnational Prevalence of Child Malnutrition
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_PMP_GSPCM


Summary
Abstract: The Global Subnational Prevalence of Child Malnutrition dataset consists of estimates of the

percentage of children with weight-for-age z-scores that are more than two standard deviations below the median of the NCHS/CDC/WHO

International Reference Population. Data are reported for the most recent year with subnational information available at the time of

development. The data products include a shapefile (vector data) of percentage rates, grids (raster data) of rates (per thousand in

order to preserve precision in integer format), the number of children under five (the rate denominator), and the number of

underweight children under five (the rate numerator), and a tabular dataset of the same and associated data. This dataset is produced

by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).


Purpose: To provide a global subnational map of the prevalence of underweight children that can be

used by a wide user community in interdisciplinary studies of health, poverty and the environment.
