We first describe the development and fitting of a model for estimating the prevalence of stunting.
Our outcome of interest is stunting in children < 5 years of age, because this best captures the impact of conditions over the long term (Black et al.
Scenario data are limited essentially to future food availability and per capita GDP, and many causes of stunting cannot be explicitly modeled.
k] is the physiological relation between undernourishment and stunting (details given below), [[gamma].
ij3]) stunting, we estimated the proportion not or mildly stunted ([y.
The "development score" is an indicator of the nonfood causes of stunting.
To parameterize the equations, we assembled a global data set obtaining country-level undernourishment estimates from the FAO (FAO 2010), per capita GDP and Gini data from the World Bank Development Indicators (WBDI) database (World Bank 2010), and stunting data from the WHO's Global Database on Child Growth and Malnutrition (WHO 2010).
Stunting data were matched to undernourishment data to within a 1-year period.
Of the two model variables, we assumed that food causes have a more stable relationship with stunting than do nonfood causes because food causes are physiologically related to stuntine, and it is reasonable to assume that this relationship will hold over the next 50 years.
We assumed that if someone had insufficient food, and nonfood causes of stunting were absent (i.
