Abstract

This paper estimates the returns to health and nutrition in both farm and off-farm activities of agricultural households in rural Bangladesh. The findings of this paper indicate that the health of adults in rural Bangladesh influences the households' choice of employment activities as well as their incomes given their participation decisions. Adult height has a significant positive effect on off-farm self-employment incomes as well as total household incomes. Higher adult BMIs also appear to increase total household incomes.
