269. No national data on maternal mortality available. Estimates derived from model.

275. Data derived from the direct sisterhood method adjusted estimates: The direct sisterhood method is a variant of the sisterhood method- a survey-based technique that obtains information by interviewing respondents on the survival of all their adult sisters


CA - Country Adjusted. The figure is the one produced and provided by the country, but adjusted by the international agency for international comparability—that is to comply with internationally agreed standards, definitions and classifications (age group, ISCED, etc)

M - Modeled. The figure is modeled by the agency when there is a complete lack of data on the variable being estimated. The model is based on a set of covariates—other variables for which data are available and that can explain the phenomenon.
