  • Anandaiah, Ravilla; Choe, Minja Kim (Mumbai, India: International Institute for Population Sciences and Honolulu: East-West Center, 2000)
    An analysis of NFHS-1 results supports the hypothesis that breastfeeding reduces mortality in the first few months of live. The beneficial effects extend to older infants when breastfeeding is combined with supplemental ...
  • Mishra, Vinod K.; Retherford, Robert D. (Mumbai, India: International Institute for Population Sciences and Honolulu: East-West Center, 1997)
    Indian children under age three living in households that use wood or animal dung as their primary cooking fuel have an almost one-third higher risk of acute respiratory infection (ARI) than do children living in households ...
  • Mishra, Vinod K.; Retherford, Robert D.; Smith, Kirk R. (Mumbai, India: International Institute for Population Sciences and Honolulu: East-West Center, 1999)
    Women living in households that use biomass cooking fuels, defined in the NFHS as wood and dung, have a much higher prevalence of both partial and complete blindness than women living in households that use cleaner fuels. ...
  • Mishra, Vinod K.; Retherford, Robert D.; Smith, Kirk R. (Mumbai, India: International Institute for Population Sciences and Honolulu: East-West Center, 1999)
    Adults in households that cook with biomass fuels, defined in the NFHS as wood and dung, suffer a significantly higher risk of tuberculosis than adults in households that cook with cleaner fuels. An estimated 51% of the ...
  • Retherford, Robert D.; Roy, T. K. (Mumbai, India: International Institute for Population Sciences and Honolulu: East-West Center, 2003)
    Birth histories collected during NFHS-1 and NFHS-2 show an unusually large proportion of male births in some population groups, which suggests that female fetuses are being aborted. Male births are particularly overrepresented ...
  • Retherford, Robert D.; Ramesh, B. M. (Mumbai, India: International Institute for Population Sciences and Honolulu: East-West Center, 1996)
    Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh are family planning success stories, whereas Uttar Pradesh has by far the highest fertility of any state in India. A comparison of NFHS findings from these three states provides some useful ...
  • Choe, Minja Kim (Mumbai, India: International Institute for Population Sciences and Honolulu: East-West Center, 1999)
    NFHS data on infant and child mortality indicate that seven groups of children in India are particularly vulnerable to mortality risks. These are: children born less than 24 months after a previous birth, children in ...
  • Mutharayappa, R. (Mumbai, India: International Institute for Population Sciences and Honolulu: East-West Center, 1997)
    Without gender preference, national-level fertility in India would decrease by about 8 percent. The NFHS Bulletin is a series of four-page policy briefs summarizing secondary analysis of data from the 1992-93 National ...
  • Rao, K. V.; Mishra, Vinod K.; Retherford, Robert D. (Mumbai, India: International Institute for Population Sciences and Honolulu: East-West Center, 1998)
    An analysis of NFHS data shows poor knowledge and use of oral rehydration therapy (ORT) among Indian women despite the government's efforts to publicize this treatment for childhood diarrhea. Many children are treated with ...
  • Narasimhan, R. L. (Mumbai, India: International Institute for Population Sciences and Honolulu: East-West Center, 1997)
    Since the late 1970s, fertility in India has fallen faster than indicated by the Sample Registration System (SRS) but more slowly than indicated by the NFHS. Current fertility is probably somewhat higher than indicated by ...
  • Retherford, Robert D.; Mishra, Vinod K. (Mumbai, India: International Institute for Population Sciences and Honolulu: East-West Center, 1997)
    Recent exposure to family planning messages on radio or television has a significant positive effect on current and intended future use of contraception, even after controlling for the effects of general media exposure. ...
  • Luther, Norman Y. (Mumbai, India: International Institute for Population Sciences and Honolulu: East-West Center, 1998)
    NFHS results show that mother's tetanus immunization during pregnancy is associated not only with reduced neonatal mortality, which is expected, but also with substantially reduced early-childhood mortality, which is ...
  • Kulkarni, Sumati; Choe, Minja Kim (Bombay, India: International Institute for Population Sciences and Honolulu: East-west Center, 1997-06)
