To better understand the drivers of chronic child undernutrition in northern Nigeria and how those drivers differ from those in other areas of the country, an econometric analysis was done of data from the 2008 and 2013 Nigeria Demographic and Health Surveys (NDHS). The analyses focused on children aged 6 to 23 months.
