Statistical analysis of factors influencing child malnutrition in Africa.
A meeting of the student society "Demographer"

The meeting of the student society "Demographer" was held on November 10, 2017 and was devoted to a statistical analysis of factors affecting child malnutrition in African countries.

The speaker of the meeting was Anna Lubnina, a first year student of the HSE programme "Population and Development". The report was devoted to the problem of general and child malnutrition. This topic has received a lot of attention from the world community, due to which many countries have developed their own policies aimed at reducing the proportion of the population suffering from malnutrition. An analysis of the problem of childhood malnutrition and the factors that affect it are also being conducted.

The global movement dedicated to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals has made a significant contribution to the solution of the problem, but the situation of many countries in Africa remains at an unsatisfactory level even despite the measures taken. Africa is one of the regions that has not reached the Millennium Development Goals, and the prevalence of child malnutrition here is one of the highest in the world.

The theoretical concept of child malnutrition and the results of previous studies of this problem were presented. African countries were viewed in terms of their relative social, economic and political situation. Also, emphasis was placed on the dynamics of indicators reflecting child malnutrition over the past twenty years. After reviewing the general situation of countries, a cluster analysis was conducted that divided the countries of Africa into three groups, depending on the level of socio-economic development.

The main conclusion of the analysis was that a factor such as an access to improved sources of drinking water plays an important role in reducing the prevalence of malnutrition and should be given attention when developing government policies aimed at eliminating the problem analyzed.

Discussion of the proposed issues was very active. The listeners, including representatives of African countries, offered their vision of the situation, the possible solutions to problems, and they highly appreciated the work done by Anna.
