Monica Alexander and Leontine Alkema
The folder accompanying this paper contains:
1) A 'code' folder, which contains all the neccesary R code to produce estimates described in the paper.
2) A documentation PDF, which describes what required data and formats, and how to run the model using the supplied code.
Code to produced more recent estimates is available from http://childmortality.org/.
The input data is available from http://childmortality.org/. This includes both neonatal mortality rates and the underlying data for children under 5.
The data used in 2015 estimation is available at http://childmortality.org/2015/.
