Nutrition and Child Growth and Development in Tunisia. Annual Progress Report, September 1, 1971--August 31, 1972.
Young, Harben Boutourline
This annual report of the Yale Project describes the progress made on the nutrition and growth study of Tunisian children from September 1, 1971 through August 31, 1972. The report details: (1) the progress in analysis of the cross-sectional study data, which was completed as of June 30, 1972, and (2) the development of the present longitudinal study. The longitudinal study is exclusively urban and interventional in nature and is designed to test the hypotheses derived from the cross-sectional study. These hypotheses are: (1) Malnutrition, synergistic with infection, contributes in large part to the demonstrated gross social class differences in mental and physical growth and physical health. (2) Cultural malnutrition as represented by parent-child intervention and other sociocultural factors plays a part to be measured in the above differences. Organizational and data collection problems of the longitudinal study are discussed under the following categories: biomedics, sociology, psychology, and nutrition. Plans for analysis, interpretation, and publication of study data are also included in the report. (CS)
