Completeness The dataset has missing data for Lao PDR in 2013 and 2014 as well as for Cambodia in 2016. The data from 2010-2014 was used from The Who dengue application, while the data after 2014 was used from WHO dengue situation updates. Those updates do not always cover the same time period, so some countries have the last report of the by beginning of December, whilst other countries have the last report by end of December.
Process Step For data from 2010-2014: On the WHO dengue application website ( data on dengue fever cases is available up to 2014. The website indicates that on regional websites, data would be available, but the link to those did not work and no other data was found. On this dengue application website, data was not possible to download in a file. For data from 2015-2019: WHO Western Pacific is posting monthly situation updates on their website ( For this dataset, the reports for December or January each year was used, since those showed numbers for the entire year from January to December, except for Vietnam, where data in 2015 and 2016 was only reported until November of each year. Data for 2019 was used from the latest report, which was showing cases until October 2019 for Vietnam and November 2019 for Lao PDR and Cambodia.
