- IGC Research on India
This project uses data from 2004 to 2014 for 26 countries to make comparisons between South Asia and Africa, examining how the regional gap in child malnutrition varies with demographic and other characteristics. Specifically, how does child malnutrition vary with a child’s gender and birth order? How much does poor maternal health explain? The policy aim of the project is to provide new facts that help us understand the root causes of malnutrition in India and inform policymaking to improve maternal and child nutritional outcomes.
