  • Column 1 reports the underlying components of the care readiness estimation reported in table 5. The unit of analysis is the facility. The estimates in the tables are (unweighted) mean outcomes across countries, with the country means calculated using country-specific sampling weights. Column 2 reports number of facilities. See notes to table 5 for details.
