UNICEF-WHO-The World Bank Group: Joint child malnutrition estimates - levels and trends
Key findings of the 2016 edition
In September 2016 the inter-agency team released new joint estimates of child stunting, overweight, underweight, wasting and severe wasting (2016 edition). The same methodology as in previous years was applied. These new estimates supersede former analyses results published by UNICEF, WHO and the World Bank Group.
Given that country data are at maximum available from surveys conducted in the year previous to when the modelling exercise takes place, in 2016 the joint estimates were derived up to 2015 with extrapolation for stunting until 2025.
