This book emphasizes the continuing necessity for simple, affordable methods of nutritional assessment which are accurate and biologically and statistically significant, which can give results rapidly, and which are understandable to scientists, administrators, and the population itself. It focuses mainly on physiologically, culturally, and economically vulnerable groups in developing countries. Topics covered include assessment of nutritional status, indirect assessment, assessment of ecological variables, methods of data collection, and aspects of planning and implementation with special references to large-scale surveys.
