Child Under-weight and Agricultural Productivity in India: Implications for Public Provisioning and Women’s Agency

Published on 1 May 2015

A recent global hunger index indicated a 12 percent decline in child underweight rates. This
study attempts an empirical explanation of the factors that influence child underweight rates at
the district level. Agricultural land productivity, share of women educated above the secondary
level and participating in work, maternal, and child health seem to contribute to the reduction
in child underweight. However government health and water supply facilities turn out to be
ineffective.
