Abstract

The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the impact of income, capital, natural shocks and other individual and household attributes on food security and stunting. A recursive bivariate probit models is estimated using household survey data from Tanzania. Results show that factors such as ownership of cattle and education help in reducing food insecurity. On the other hand, more targeted programs to educate mothers and increase awareness of health and sanitary practices are likely to be more effective in reducing the incidence of stunting.
