Poverty Nutrition Trap in Rural India.


The contributions of the present report are as follows. Using data for rural India we test for the existence of a PNT in the case of two macronutrients - calories and protein - and select micronutrients (calcium, carotene, iron, riboflavin and thiamine) separately and for each category of wages - sowing, harvesting, and other - and for male and female workers separately. We use robust sample selection procedures to arrive at consistent estimates. It is discovered that the PNT exists in a number of cases. The paper also advances a number of policy conclusions from the analysis.
