Double burden of nutritional disorder among Indian women: an assessment of differentials and determinants
AbstractIn India, over the years, the progress in women’s nutritional status has been less impressive and remains as a major problem for health policy. The dual burden of nutritional disorder of women in India is posing a serious challenge not only for nutritional policy but also for socio-economic and welfare policies. Therefore, this study assess the determinants of double nutritional disorders among Indian women and consequential within group deviations and between group differentials. Third round of National Family Health Survey (NFHS-3, 2005-06) data, descriptive statistics such as mean and standard deviations and multivariate statistics such as multinomial logistic regression and Multiple Classifications Analysis (MCA) are used for the purpose of this study. The existing socio-economic and behavioural differences and consequential obligations that women face threaten the nutritional balance in India. Obliteration of these anomalies is important to ensure the balanced nutritional status for women in India.
