This map shows the number of girls (0-14 years old), who have undergone FGM (as reported by their mothers).
This map uses data by UNICEF (last accessed January 2019). We aim to map as complete data as possible and therefore estimate data for missing values. In some cases, missing data for very small territories is not used in the cartogram and that area is therefore omitted in the map.
Further notes on the data, as well as all modifications to the original data source are noted in our data sheets.
