Nutritional Deprivation of Children in Orissa

This paper seeks to measure deprivation in terms of physical development and calorie-intake of children in two villages of Orissa. While the first aspect focuses on retardation in the physical growth of children as reflected in their weights vis-à-vis age, the second aspect highlights the inadequacy of children's calorie-intake. The analysis is based on a framework that is typically used in measuring income poverty but is rarely used in the measurement of physical underdevelopment of children.
