This table shows that for all countries for the 6 countries in which a Demographic and Health Survey was conducted after 2006, the year in which the Millennium Villages Program was initiated, the rate of decline of under-5 mortality in rural areas has exceeded the rate of decline nationally. In Mali, which conducted a DHS in 2006, the rate of decline in rural areas measured in that year was 1.6%, slightly lower than the 2.0% drop nationally.

These figures are all based on the "10 year" rates reported in the DHS reports and Statcompiler, which means that they correspond to the 10 year period before a given survey.
