  1. *p value: significance of the correlation between the AAC in each component in specific interventions and the AAC in under-5 mortality rate
  2. † r2 is the proportion of variability in the AAC in under-5 mortality rate that can be explained by changes in the values of each component
  3. Note: All analyses were adjusted for AAC in GDP, adult HIV prevalence, household TV and electricity, education of women 15-19, sanitation, after supply, and for under-5 mortality rate during the penultimate survey
