Nutrition in India: Facts and Interpretations

Angus Deaton () and Jean Drèze ()

Working Papers from eSocialSciences

Abstract: 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 Kenya’s in 1950, and about the same as Nigeria’s, is now two and a half times as large as per capita income in both countries. [Working Paper No. 170]
