Projected and observed exclusive breastfeeding for age groups 12–13 to 34–35 months of age, with reference lines of 10% (short dashes) and 1% (long dashes) prevalence. High observed rates of exclusive breastfeeding throughout second and third year of childhood in AfrD, in particular, rates of 15–20% in Guinea-Bissau (code = 72) throughout second year of childhood and over 5% throughout third year, and persistent rates of nearly 5% in Nigeria (code = 124, multiple surveys) and Guinea (code = 71), suggest systematic measurement error.
