Abstract:Although the overall health of children is much improved in Matlab, Bangladesh since the late 1970's, when life expectancies were low and females suffered significantly higher rates of mortality than males, sex differences in nutritional status, negatively affecting girls, remain. I use the 1996 Matlab Health and Socioeconomic Survey to examine child well-being and gender equality in health. I focus on maternal empowerment as an important determinant both of overall child health and health equality, and find that while maternal empowerment is associated with improved child health and health-equality by sex, empowerment that is gained through maternal work may have negative consequences for children when child care options are poor. Additionally, I re-examine commonly used anthropometric measures of nutrition (malnourishment and stunting) and find that while these measures are do not correlate with actual reports of morbidity, nutritional measures are linked to well-being (measured by progress in school).
