"The Effect of Birth Weight on Cognitive Development: New Evidence from India"
Sponsored by India Studies and Asian/Asian American Studies Institute

Abstract: The fetal origins hypothesis postulates that nutrient deprivation in utero has a long lasting detrimental effect on child health and cognition development. In this paper we investigate the effect of low birth weight, a proxy for fetal nutrient intake, on cognition development of children in India, using longitudinal data.
