Spatial heterogeneity of haemoglobin concentration in preschool-age children in sub-Saharan Africa
Objective To determine whether blood haemoglobin concentration in preschool-age children (< 5 years of age) is geographically heterogeneous in sub-Saharan Africa and describe its association with environmental variables that drive anaemia of different etiologies. Methods Data were obtained on 24 277 preschool-age children in western Africa (2862 cluster sites) and 25 343 in eastern Africa (2999 cluster sites) from the 2001-2007 Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) for sub-Saharan Africa....[Show more]
