The effect of early childhood stunting on children’s cognitive achievements: Evidence from young lives Ethiopia

Author: Tassew Woldehanna, Jere R. Behrman, Mesele W. Araya
Publisher: EJHD
Document Type: Reports
Document Abstract:

In this article, the authors examine the effect early childhood stunting on cognitive achievements of children using longitudinal data that incorporate anthropometric measurements and results of cognitive achievement tests such as Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test and Cognitive Development Assessment quantitative tests. Their work is borne out of the context that there is little empirical evidence on the effect of childhood malnutrition on children’s cognitive achievements in low income countries like Ethiopia. Longitudinal data is therefore vital to understand the factors that influence cognitive development of children over time, particularly how early childhood stunting affects cognitive achievement of children up to the age of 8 years.
