Abstract:

This report describes the nutritional status in 19 countries surveyed under the first phase of the DHS program (DHS I), as well as differentials in the levels of undernutrition by selected demographic, socioeconomic, and health-related characteristics. Only findings based on anthropometric indices derived from the measurement of childrens' height and weight are presented.
