Correlation of prevalence of wasting by weight-for-height, mid-upper arm circumference, and difference in prevalence. a Correlation of prevalence of global acute malnutrition (GAM) as determined by weight-for-height (Y-axis) and prevalence of GAM by mid-upper arm circumference (MUAC) (X-axis), by region. b Correlation of the difference in prevalence of GAM as determined by WHZ and prevalence of GAM by MUAC (Y-axis) and prevalence of GAM by MUAC (X-axis), by region. c Correlation of the difference in prevalence of GAM as determined by WHZ and prevalence of GAM by MUAC (Y-axis) and prevalence of GAM by WHZ (X-axis), by region. Regions represented by colors as follows: Latin America and the Caribbean (blue), Eastern and Southern Africa (green), Congo DRC (red), West and Central Africa (yellow), Middle East and North Africa (orange), South East Asia and Pacific (aqua), Sudan (purple)
