Post a reply: What is the correct population percentage proportion to use when consider 0-5 years in developing countries?

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

I am trying to decipher which population percentage should be used when referring to the under 5 yrs. In the emergency IFE Operational guidance, it states the expected population proportions for 0-60 months (5years) is 12.5%. However it is accepted in practice to use 20% as the estimated population percentage in the field. Is this because 20% is applied within a programme context rather than a country specific one? Thank you
