Overview

This document presents data on indicators for assessing infant and young child feeding practices for 46 countries, based on Demographic and Health Surveys conducted between 2002 and 2008. The indicator values were calculated using new and updated definitions published by WHO and partners in 2008; some values have not been calculated before and therefore provide a baseline for tracking progress in infant and young child nutrition in the future.

The document is one in a series of three documents on Indicators for assessing infant and young child feeding practices issued by WHO that also include Part 1: Definitions and Part 2: Measurement.
