Disease burden and mortality estimates
CHILD CAUSES OF DEATH, 2000–2017
Cause-specific mortality estimates for major causes of child death for 2000–2017 are available for download below.
A summary of the methods is available from the links below. A file containing input data sources and open access statistical code as programmed in Stata for reproducing these estimates will be made available at a later time.
These estimates are an update to the child causes of death estimates for 2000–2016 published in February 2018, using similar methodology applied to updated data sources. These estimates supersede previously published estimates, and differences with previously published estimates should not be interpreted as representing time trends.
