Background: Despite the exceptional progress made in reducing under-five mortality, intestinal laxity among young people is still the main source of mortality and morbidity at present and a powerless population. In Pakistan, research findings on the prevalence and determinants of defecation among under-fives are contradictory. Thus, this deliberate audit and meta-examination assesses the pervasiveness of diarrhea and their factors amongst children under six in Pakistan. Methods: International records, counting PubMed, Web of Science, EMBASE, CINAHL, Google Scholar, Science Direct and Cochrane Library, remained deliberately searched. Altogether recognized observational surveys reporting occurrence also determinants of free bowel in offspring under six years of age in Pakistan were incorporated. Two creators independently extracted each fundamental data using an institutionalized information retrieval concept. Our current research was conducted at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, Lahore from November 2018 to October 2019. The measurable programming of STATA version 23 was used. The results of Cochrane Q test and the I2 test remained used to study heterogeneity of surveys. An arbitrary impact model was developed to assess the dominance of the series. In addition, the relationship between the determining variables and youth bowel was observed by means of arbitrary impact model. Results: After checking 560 reviews, 33 surveys met the incorporation standards and remained selected for meta-examination. Results from 33 investigations exposed that ubiquity of liquid bowel in broods under five years of age in Pakistan was 23% (96% CI: 21, 26%). The subgroup survey in this review found that highest ubiquity remained found in Afar zone (28%), trailed by Lahore (27%) and Addis Ababa (26%). Absence of parental education (OR: 3.6, 96% CI: 1.4, 3.2), absence of access to toilets (OR: 3.1, 96% CI: 2.4, 4.3), urban settlement (OR: 2.7, 96% CI: 1.3, 4.1), and maternal handwashing (OR: 3.3, 96% CI: 3.1, 3.7) were fundamentally related to youth defecation. Conclusion: In this survey, defecation between offspring under six years of age in Pakistan was essentially high. Lack of maternal education, lack of access to toilets, urban lifestyles also absence of motherly handwashing remained all related to youth defecation.
