Situation Nutritionnelles des jeunes enfants au Rwanda: Une analyse de données anthropométriques collectées par l'Enquête sur les Conditions de Vie des Ménages 1999-2001

This paper presents the results of descriptive analysis of the nutritional data collected in the EICV survey. As part of a larger analytical effort aimed at better understanding the factors that affect human livelihoods in Rwanda, this paper represents an initial attempt to use the anthropometric data on children’s weight, height and age to determine the prevalence of stunting, wasting and underweight among Rwandan children 3 to 59 months by age groups, sex, rural/urban areas and by province. It also examines the seasonal prevalence of malnutrition and looks at the differences in nutritional outcomes in various agriculture production zones. Finally, the data are compared to malnutrition rates in other countries in the region, and to previous nutritional surveys undertaken in Rwanda over the past 10 years.
