Table 3 Regression coefficients describing trends over time for age-standardised YLDs and deaths rate per 100,000 for both sexes for diarrhoeal diseases for all WASH risk factors, and child nutrition risk factors for under 5 in the DRC from 1990 to 2019

From: The burden of diarrhoeal diseases in the Democratic Republic of Congo: a time-series analysis of the global burden of disease study estimates (1990–2019)
