These estimates are made by WHO Headquarters using special techniques and are published in the annual World Health Reports. Data from various sources, including surveys, have been used when routine vital statistics were not available or were incomplete. They were also partially harmonized with survey-based estimates used by UNICEF and some other organizations.
These estimates may differ significantly from the official national figures for some countries where registration of deaths and births is incomplete. The difference can be seen by comparing with the indicator 1110 070100 “Infant deaths per 1000 live births” which is calculated using official mortality, population and live birth data as reported by countries to WHO.
