Methodology

Estimation of regional and global trends has been based on a multilevel modelling method (see de Onis et al. in JAMA, 2004). For the most recent trend analysis presented below, a total of 716 data points from 145 countries over the period 1985 to 2013 were included in the model. This set of trend data points was jointly reviewed by UNICEF and WHO in June and July 2014 to ensure that it is nationally representative of under-five children, processed using standard algorithms and comparable vertically and horizontally. Regional trend modelling and graphing were carried out using STATA 11 on two ‘do’ files (the data set and do files are available on request).
