Global Database on Child Growth and Malnutrition

2012 Joint child malnutrition estimates - Levels and trends

UNICEF-WHO-The World Bank project

In 2013 UNICEF, WHO and the World Bank reported new joint estimates of child malnutrition using available data up to 2012. An interactive dashboard presents the updated prevalence estimates and numbers affected for stunting, underweight, overweight, wasting and severe wasting by the different regional classification (i.e. UN, MDG, UNICEF, WHO regions as well as World Bank geographic regions and income groups).

These estimates were derived using the same methodology as in previous years.
