* Levels of accuracy in the Table 1 refer to levels published in survey’s reports. These surveys exclude non-sedentary populations (did not sample some zones in Afar and Somali regions), and are therefore accurate only to the sedentary populations of geographic areas. The 2004 WMS (data from 2005) excludes Gambella region entirely. Gambella region has had high levels of malnutrition in the past (i.e. the 2000 WMS reports 13% wasting, 32% underweight, and 40.5% stunting).
