EMPIRICAL MODELS FOR LONGITUDINAL POST-NATAL GROWTH

Pooled logistic regression to describe characteristics associated with wasting and recovery

To estimate the association between identified risk ractors (e.g., birthweight) and incident wasting and recovery for episodes in the age 0-6 month window.

AGE RANGE

0-24 months

OUTCOMES

Incident wasting and recovery from wasting among children who are wasted.

Predictors (other than time)

Sex, gestational age at birth, birthweight, WHZ at birth, LAZ at birth, birth order, calendar month of birth, delivery location (hospital), height, BMI, age, education, marital status, breastfeeding practices, asset-based wealth index, number of rooms, total number of persons, number of children < 5 y, animals, flooring (improved vs. unimproved), sanitation facility (JMP definitions), safe water source (JMP definitions), treats drinking water, soap present in the home.

Do we have a tool for visualizing model output/predictions? If not, do we plan to?

On-going work

Age-stratification; evaluation of measurement error and seasonality; completion of the evaluation of time-fixed characteristics; study dynamic (time-varying) characteristics.
