Nutritional Deficiencies in Maharashtra, 2004-05 and 2011-12

This paper on nutritional deficiencies in Maharashtra computes the incidences of deprivation in calorie, protein, and fat for rural and urban areas across regions, social group (caste), religion, and household type (occupation). The calculations are made for 2004-05 and 2011-12 based on unit level National Sample Survey data by superimposing the recently recommended dietary allowance. In doing so, a methodological contribution is the extension of Pα class of deprivation measure to one where the deprivation line is household-specific and nutrient-specific.

Key words: Nutritional deficiency, Household specific deprivation line, and Sub-group differences.
