ABSTRACT:
As per the report of NFHS-5 in India 514 districts have more than 40 per cent prevalence of anemia among the children aged between 6-59 months. The present study analyses the status of anemia prevalence among the children (6-59 months) across states of India using the data from NFHS-4 and 5 factsheets. The study finds that prevalence of anemia in children (6-59 months) has increased for most of the states. The results of pooled OLS regression suggest that prevalence of iron-deficiency in women (age 15-49 years), public health expenditure and proper diet intake by children are important determinants of child anemia prevalence. The latter two factors have negative relation with child anemia prevalence whereas the former one has a positive relation with child anemia.
