Influence of mothers' and fathers' income on children's nutritional status in Guatemala.
Women, development and health. International conference. East Lansing MI (USA), 1988.
The relative effects of fathers' and mothers' income on children's nutritional status were examined with a sample of 294 peri-urban Guatemalan children aged 8-47 months.
Whether or not incomes tended to be pooled, and the relation of income earning to decision-making about purchases were examined.
Four measures of income were constructed for both mother and father: total income, contribution to the household food budget, percentage of her/his income contributed to the household food budget, and a percentage of total family income earned by that person.
In the majority of households, women did not report pooling their incomes.
