In order to compare periodic changes in STC prevalence, the researchers grouped studies into five-year periods: 2000-2004, 2005-2009, 2010-2014, 2015-2019.

Within the pooled estimates across these countries, the researchers found a higher STC prevalence for men at 30% than women at 16% and 24% in rural dwellings, as opposed to 17% in urban dwellings. Additionally, the researchers found a significant decrease of STC in Bangladesh and India [...]
