Measurement of Incidence of Undernutrition

Measurement of Incidence of Undernutrition Santi K Chakrabarti Manoj K Panda This paper discusses P V Sukhatme's approach to measurement of the incidence of undernutrition. While raising doubts about Sukhatme's criterion, the authors do not question his basic model of in- dividual calorie requirements. However, even after accepting the model together with Sukhatme's propositions about the distribution of different elements of intake as well as the joint distribution of intake and requirement, the authors argue for a cut-off line of calorie intake for measurement of poverty which is different from (mostly higher than) that advocated by Sukhatme.

Above all, the process results in the entire capitalist organised sector exploiting the pre-capitalist, unorganised, predominantly rural, farming sector. The truth can no longer be concealed. The peasant is becoming aware of it; it will be only bourgeois politics to keep the "worker ignorant about it.
