Luxembourg is 'on course' to meet one of the global nutrition targets for which there was sufficient data to assess progress. No progress has been made towards achieving the target of reducing anaemia among women of reproductive age, with Meanwhile, there has also been no progress towards achieving the low birth weight target, with 6.
There is insufficient data to assess the progress that Luxembourg has made towards achieving the exclusive breastfeeding target, nor is there adequate prevalence data. Similarly, there is insufficient prevalence data or data to assess the progress that Luxembourg has made towards achieving the target for stunting. There is also insufficient data to assess the progress that Luxembourg has made towards achieving the target for wasting, nor is there adequate prevalence data.
There is inadequate prevalence data to show the proportion of children under 5 years of age who are overweight and there is insufficient data available to assess whether Luxembourg is on course to prevent the figure from increasing. Luxembourg has shown limited progress towards achieving the diet-related non-communicable disease NCD targets. The country has shown no progress towards achieving the target for obesity, with an estimated Luxembourg's obesity prevalence is lower than the regional average of The country is 'on course' to meet the target for diabetes when looking at adult women 3.
MIYCN targets include anaemia among women of reproductive age WRA, 15—49 yearsinfants with low birthweight, exclusive breastfeeding among infants under 6 months of age, and stunting, wasting and overweight in children under 5 years of age.
NCD targets include adult obesity and diabetes; raised blood pressure and salt intake are not presented due to lack of country-level data. Obesity and diabetes are based on age-standardised modelled estimates for adults aged 18 years and older, using the WHO standard population; they are reported by sex due to limitations in data availability. Anaemia and low birthweight are also based on modelled estimates. The methodologies for tracking progress differ across targets.
See Methodology for more information on the indicators. Intakes are based on modelled estimates for adults aged 25 years and older. Regional intakes are based on population-weighted means of 42 countries and sub-regional intakes are based on population-weighted means of 8 countries. The dietary factors have been selected as those diet components that have a statistically ificant relationship with at least one disease endpoint that can be generalisable to all populations.
Accurate macro & micro economic data you can trust
Protective dietary factors include fruit, vegetables, legumes, nuts and seeds, whole grains, milk, fibre, polyunsaturated fat, omega 3 fatty acids and calcium. Harmful dietary factors include red meats, processed meats, sugar-sweetened beverages, trans fat and sodium. The theoretical minimum risk of exposure level TMREL represents the optimal dietary intake that minimises risk from all causes of deaths combined.

Health worker definition and training vary across countries and human resources tend to be concentrated in urban areas, so inferences may be affected.
Physicians include generalist and specialist medical doctors. Nurses and midwives include professional, auxiliary and enrolled nurses and midwives, as well as other associated personnel, e.

The Gini index ranges from 0 perfect equality to perfect inequality. Countries are ranked from most equal 1 to most unequal Human Development Report, The Gender Inequality Index GII measures: gender inequalities in reproductive health, measured by maternal mortality ratio and adolescent birth rates; empowerment, measured by proportion of parliamentary seats occupied by women and proportion of women and men aged 25 years and older with at least some secondary education; and economic status, expressed as labour market participation and measured by labour force participation rate of female and male populations aged 15 years and older.
GII ranges from 0 women and men fare equally to 1 one gender fares as poorly as possible in all measured dimensions. Country Nutrition Profiles Explore the latest data on nutrition at global, regional and country level.
