Table 4 Validation of resulting number of children moderately and severely wasted in October 2019 using context-specific incidence rates

From: A mathematical model to estimate the incidence of child wasting in Yemen

  SMART 2019 Model output
Number of children moderately wasted 3733 3738.39
Number of children severely wasted 21,358 21,374.55
  1. Upon running the model between the period of August 2018 and October 2019 using the context-specific incidence rates, the resulting number of children who were moderately or severely wasted in October 2019 were validated against the respective values recorded in the October 2019 SMART survey
