Extended Data Fig. 1: Comparison of diarrhea prevalence in children under 5 years and EBF prevalence by area.

From: Mapping exclusive breastfeeding in Africa between 2000 and 2017

Extended Data Fig. 1

Overlapping population-weighted tertiles of diarrhea prevalence (in children under 5 years)12 and EBF prevalence (in children 0–5 months) in 2000, 2005, 2010 and 2015. Cut-offs for the tertiles were 20.8 and 36.1% for the EBF prevalence axis, and 3.6 and 5.0% for the diarrhea prevalence axis. Maps reflect administrative boundaries, land cover, lakes and population; gray-colored grid cells had fewer than ten people per 1 km × 1 km grid cell and were classified as ‘barren or sparsely vegetated’, or were not included in this analysis.
