UNICEF-WHO-The World Bank: Joint child malnutrition estimates - Levels and trends
For the first time UNICEF, WHO and the World Bank report joint estimates of child malnutrition for 2011 and trends since 1990. Estimates of prevalence and numbers for child stunting, underweight, overweight and wasting are presented by United Nations, Millennium Development Goal, UNICEF, WHO regional and World Bank income group classifications.
This is the result of the data harmonization effort which started in 2011.
These data supersede relevant historical analysis previously published by UNICEF, the World Bank and WHO.
Global and regional trends of child stunting by UN regions 1990-2025
Global and regional trends of child under- and overweight by UN regions 1990-2015
Child wasting is very sensitive to change. Thus estimates for this indicator do not include any forecast and cover the years 1990-2011.
