Malnourished children: Percentage of children under age five years who are classified as undernourished according to three anthropometric indices of nutritional status: height-for-age (stunting), weight-for-age (underweight) and weight-for-height (wasting). Each index is expressed in terms of the number of standard deviation (SD) units from the median of the WHO Child Growth Standards. Children are classified as malnourished if their z-scores are below minus two or minus three standard deviations (-2 SD or -3 SD) from the median of the WHO Child Growth Standards. The percentage below -2 SD includes children who are below -3 SD.
