Nutritional Status in Maharashtra

My observation is wherever the female literacy rate is low and the gender gap in literacy is high, the percent of women with anemia (with HB level of less than7) is also high. Literacy rate and infant mortality rate are inversely related indicating a direct link between the education level of women and child health status.
