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.
