Abstract

Variables that influence the labor history of the father with a severely malnourished infant and how those variables influence the nutritional status of the infant were studied. The sample included 78 father-infant dyads--40 with severely malnourished infants (experimental group) and 39 with healthy infants (control group). A structural interview was carried out over a 5 year period (1973-79). Results showed that the labor history appears influenced by these factors: early entry into the labor force, diverse jobs, urban origins, and schooling. The experimental group works more in the informal urban sector and changed more jobs than those in the control group. The nutritional status of the infant is influenced by the father's labor instability, socioeconomic status, origin (whether urban or rural), and family stability. (author's modified)
