This study examines the determinants of child nutritional status in China, focusing specially on the household income effect. Data are drawn from China Health and Nutrition Survey, including 4 waves from 1991 to 2000. The empirical relationship between nutritional status and income, on the one hand and other effect factors like mother's height, maternal education, location (urban vs. rural, north vs. south) is investigated. Ordinary Least Squares, Random Effects, Fixed Effects and Instrumental Variables models are used, respectively. In the preferred model, a fixed effects model where income is instrumented, we find that the household income per capita shows no significant impact on the height-for-age z-scores.
