The spatial distribution of protein deficiency in rural India in the last three quinquennial rounds of NSS

Jha, Raghbendra


This paper computes protein deficiency indicators across 75 NSS regions for the quinquennial rounds of 1987.88, 1993.94 and 1999.2000. Furthermore, regional inequality in protein deficiency has persisted over time. The economic reforms program has been unable to make any significant dent on the spatial distribution of protein deficiency. The results presented here facilitate easy identification of lagging areas on which nutrition enhancement policy must concentrate.
