Estimates for 2000–2012


The latest cause-specific mortality estimates for major causes of child deaths are available for download below.

These estimates can also be accessed interactively through the WHO Global Health Observatory (see link below), which includes estimates for various regional definitions.

A summary of the data sources and methods is available from the links below, together with a folder containing input data sources and open access statistical code as programmed in Stata for reproducing these estimates. Due to changes in data and some methods, the 2000-2012 estimates are not comparable to previously-released WHO estimates.
