dc.description.abstract
The reduction of infant and child death is one of the eight millennium development goals (MDGs). In addition, one of the goal one indicators is child malnutrition. A central question for the development community is to understand the factors underlying child health and nutritional status. What are the determinants of these indicators, which of these determinants are amenable to policy intervention, and which are the most effective channels for influencing health and nutrition outcomes? Potentially more insightful is analysis using data collected from household surveys which can include such variables. This paper summarizes the conclusions from these statistical studies of the determinants of child health (infant and child mortality) and nutritional status. The results from the various studies are combined using meta-analysis, which calculates the statistical significance of a variable included in more than one study by combining the results of those studies. In this context, the report is structured as follows: part one gives introduction. Part two briefs review of theory to introduce the relevant variables and their classification. Part three discusses data and variable definition and econometric issues, including the use of meta-analysis. The results are presented in part four and part five concludes. Annexes provide more details of the studies reviewed in this paper.
