How rapidly will child undernutrition respond to income growth? This study explores that question using household survey data from 12 countries. In addition, data on the undernutrition rates since the 1970s available from a cross-section of countries are employed in this investigation. The analysis yields that income increases at household and national levels imply similar rates of reduction in undernutrition.
