Nutrition in India: Facts and Interpretations
The Indian economy has recently grown at historically unprecedented rates and is now one of the fastest-growing economies in the world. Real GDP per head grew at 3.95 percent a year from 1980 to 2005, and at 5.4 percent a year from 2000 to 2005. Measured at international prices, real per capita income in India, which was two-thirds of Kenyaâ€™s in 1950, and about the same as Nigeriaâ€™s, is now two and a half times as large as per capita income in both countries.
