Click on a country name below to open respective page from where to access the available data and reference tables. Prevalence data are presented based on WHO standards and NCHS reference. If no data are available a link to the reference table provides information on published studies of interest.

In the Notes column of the data table, "Converted estimates" refers to national surveys for which it was impossible to reanalyze the original raw data. In these cases in order to convert NCHS reference-based to WHO standards-based estimates an algorithm was applied (see www.who.int/nutgrowthdb/publications/algorithms).
