Indicator notes
Estimated maternal mortality per 100 000 live births (WHO/UNICEFF/UNFPA estimates)
Indicator code: E080120.F

WHO and UNICEF with the participation of UNFPA and The World Bank have developed an approach to estimating maternal mortality that seeks to generate estimates for countries with no data and to correct available data for underreporting and misclassification. These estimates may significantly differ from national statistics reported by countries to WHO.
