The level of Nutrition in Kerela

Published By: CDS on eSS | Published Date: December, 19 , 1972

A considerable proportion of the Indian population is generally believed to suffer from under-nutrition and malnutrition. The proportion of India's population falling below the minimum level of nutrition is anybody's guess; an attempt to derive such proportion from the available data is beset with a host of conceptual and statistical problems. Granting that the significant proportion of the population do not get sufficient calories, proteins etc., is it because there is not enough to go round or is it because the available supplies are unequally distributed?
