Creating spatial interpolation surfaces with DHS data

No. 11. (2015)


Improved understanding of sub-national geographic variation and inequity in demographic and health indicators is increasingly recognized as central to meeting development goals. Data from DHS surveys are critical to monitoring progress in these indicators but are generally not used to support sub-national evaluation below the first-level administrative unit. This study explored the potential of geostatistical approaches for the production of interpolated surfaces from GPS cluster located survey data, and for the prediction of gridded surfaces at 5×5km resolution. The impact of DHS cluster displacement on these interpolated ...


Assessing comorbidity and correlates of wasting and stunting among children in Somalia using cross-sectional household surveys: 2007 to 2010

BMJ Open, Vol. 6, No. 3. (09 March 2016), e009854,


[Objective] Wasting and stunting may occur together at the individual child level; however, their shared geographic distribution and correlates remain unexplored. Understanding shared and separate correlates may inform interventions. We aimed to assess the spatial codistribution of wasting, stunting and underweight and investigate their shared correlates among children aged 6–59 months in Somalia. [Setting] Cross-sectional nutritional assessments surveys were conducted using structured interviews among communities in Somalia biannually from 2007 to 2010. A two-stage cluster sampling methodology was used to select children aged ...


Mapping under-5 and neonatal mortality in Africa, 2000–15: a baseline analysis for the Sustainable Development Goals

The Lancet, Vol. 390, No. 10108. (November 2017), pp. 2171-2182,
Keywords: africa   development   mapping   modelling   mortality  


[Background] During the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) era, many countries in Africa achieved marked reductions in under-5 and neonatal mortality. Yet the pace of progress toward these goals substantially varied at the national level, demonstrating an essential need for tracking even more local trends in child mortality. With the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015, which established ambitious targets for improving child survival by 2030, optimal intervention planning and targeting will require understanding of trends and rates of progress ...


Fine resolution mapping of population age-structures for health and development applications

Journal of The Royal Society Interface, Vol. 12, No. 105. (18 March 2015), 20150073,


The age-group composition of populations varies considerably across the world, and obtaining accurate, spatially detailed estimates of numbers of children under 5 years is important in designing vaccination strategies, educational planning or maternal healthcare delivery. Traditionally, such estimates are derived from population censuses, but these can often be unreliable, outdated and of coarse resolution for resource-poor settings. Focusing on Nigeria, we use nationally representative household surveys and their cluster locations to predict the proportion of the under-five population in 1 × ...


Nigeria AIMS geocoded research release, version 1.3.1

In AidData Datasets (2016)
Keywords: data   development   funding   geospatial   nigeria   open-data  


[Excerpt: Full description] This geocoded dataset release represents all projects in Nigeria's Development Assistance Database (DAD). It tracks 595 projects across 1843 locations between 1988 and 2014. Data for $2,116,331,293.00 in geocoded commitments and $6,093,125,384.00 in geocoded disbursements are contained within the dataset. The included "project.tsv," "locations.tsv," and "transactions.tsv" are structured so as to be combinable with other v1.0 geocoded dataset releases. All tables in the data folder can be joined by DAD project ids. This ...

Meta-information Database (INRMM-MiD).
This database integrates a dedicated meta-information database in CiteULike (the CiteULike INRMM Group) with the meta-information available in Google Scholar, CrossRef and DataCite. The Altmetric database with Article-Level Metrics is also harvested. Part of the provided semantic content (machine-readable) is made even human-readable thanks to the DCMI Dublin Core viewer. Digital preservation of the meta-information indexed within the INRMM-MiD publication records is implemented thanks to the Internet Archive.
The library of INRMM related pubblications may be quickly accessed with the following links.

INRMM-MiD was experimentally established by the Maieutike Research Initiative in 2008 and then improved with the help of several volunteers (with a major technical upgrade in 2011). This new integrated interface is operational since 2014.
