In this new edition of a book published by the World Health Organization in 1966, the focus is mainly on physiologically, culturally and economically vulnerable groups in developing countries. It emphasizes the necessity for simple, affordable methods which are accurate, biologically and statistically significant, produce rapid results and are understandable to scientists, administrators and the population itself. Topics covered include assessment of nutritional status, indirect assessment, assessment of ecological variables, methods of data collection and aspects of planning and implementation with special references to large-scale surveys. The book should be particularly useful for nutritionists in developing countries, but could also be used in the study of malnutrition in the developing world.
