Estimates for 2000–2013


Cause-specific mortality estimates for major causes of child death for 2000–2013 are available for download below (released September 2014).

A summary of the data sources and methods is available from the links below, together with a file containing input data sources and open access statistical code as programmed in Stata for reproducing these estimates.

These estimates are a minor update to the comprehensive child causes of death update for 2000-2012 published in May 2014. These estimates for 2000–2013 use the same methodology, but include more recent all-cause mortality estimates for UN-IGME and extend estimates to 2013. Due to changes in inputs or methods across estimation rounds, these estimates are not comparable to previously-released WHO estimates.
