Household distribution of energy intake and its relationship to socio-economic and anthropometric variables



Household distribution of energy intake and its relationship to socio-economic and anthropometric variables



Food and Nutrition Bulletin 8(4): 3-6



Data were collected from a nutrition survey of rural Bangladesh conducted during 1981/82. An alarming energy situation was revealed: about 48% of the study households had an intake of below 80% of their requirement and 76% lived below the poverty level. Maldistribution within and among the families seemed to aggravate the situation. Socioeconomic factors such as land holding, income and expenditure on food have a positive influence on energy adequacy.
