Abstract

The data used in this analysis are from household surveys carried out in three rural provinces of the Philippines in 1983-84 by the Philippine National Nutrition Council, the Ministry of Agriculture, and the International Food Policy Research Institute. The surveys were conducted to evaluate a pilot food price subsidy program that was tested in areas with high rates of poverty and malnutrition. The data were collected in four separate survey rounds and covered c800 households. The study supplies strong evidence that the food subsidy was successful at improving the nutrition (calorie consumption) and current health status (weight for height) of pre-schoolers. -from Authors
