The bars show the percentage of children at each age who are classified as being stunted or not stunted based on their height, those who change from being stunted to not being stunted (i.e. recovered) and from being not stunted to stunted (i.e. faltered) between consequent survey rounds. Note that this visualization filters to show one country at a time, and can be explored by child sex, household wealth and location in 2002. For information on how we define these variables, please find our data dictionary here.
