Spatial patterns of child growth in Papua New Guinea and their relation to environment, diet, socio-economic status and subsistence activities
Anthropometric data from the 1982/83 Papua New Guinea (PNG) National Nutrition Survey were analysed to identify geographical patterns of child growth and investigate their relation to a wide range of environmental, dietary and socio-economic variables. Standardized growth scores for length-for-age (LAZ), weight-for-age (WAZ) and weight-for-length (WLZ) were calculated based on an internal PNG growth reference. Hierarchical Bayesian spatial models based on conditional autoregressive (CAR) priors...[Show more]
