  Abstract


Anaemia in India is a severe public health problem among younger children of age 6- 59 months. In addition to increased morbidity and poor effects on physical well-being (weakness and/or fatigue), anaemia is linked by delayed cerebral and psychomotor growth and a higher risk of maternal mortality. The present study investigated the anaemia and associated risk factors among children aged 6 to 59 months belong to rural India. The study used data from the fourth round of the National Family Health Survey (NFHS-IV), which was conducted during 2015�16. In the NFHS-IV survey, a total of 259,627 children under 5 were collected from India, out of which a total of 0.18 million rural children were analysed. The study used Stata/MP Version 14.1 for appropriate bivariate and multivariate statistical analysis. Overall, 60 percent of children aged 6�59 months had some degree of anaemia. The severity of anaemia among children show that had 28 percent had mild anaemia, 30 percent had moderate anaemia and 2 percent had severe anaemia. Among children, the prevalence of anaemia in major states was highest in Haryana (73%), followed by Jharkhand (72%) and Madhya Pradesh (70%) and was lowest in Manipur (23%) and Mizoram (25%). The adjusted odds ratio results show that age of the child, sex, meal diversity, mother�s BMI and anaemia status, antenatal visits, substance use pattern, education and wealth were significantly associated with anaemia status of the children.
