The factors which influence participation in nutrition interventions are not well understood.
This study identifies the relative importance of various determinants of participation in a longitudinal, on-site nutritional supplementation project conducted in rural Guatemala.
The study examines attendance of children age 0-72 months at the feeding centers during the first year of the project, 1969.
The results indicate that participation did not occur at random, and a variety of factors contributed to the participation of individual children, particularly mother's literacy, child's age, family size, and distance from the home to the feeding center.
