  1. The n represents the total sample of individuals living in households with children under 5
  2. aIn Tajikistan, there were no individuals who experience more than 75% of the weighted sum of deprivations. Therefore, there is no information related to their levels of coverage in the selected indicators. Given the sample size of 5, we do furthermore not present estimates for those deprived in at least 50% of the weighted SDS indicators
