        ABSTRACT

        Do household consumption-smoothing strategies in poor countries entail significant long-run costs in terms of reduced human capital? This paper exploits the timing of monsoon rainf shocks and the seasonal nature of agriculture to isolate income effects on early childhood anthropometric outcomes in rural Nepal and to provide evidence on the persistence of these effects into later childhood Findings suggest that a 10 percent increase in rainf from historic norms during the most recently completed monsoon leads to a 015 standard deviation increase in weight-for-age for children ages 0-36 months This total impact consists of a negative "disease environment effect" of no more than 002 standard deviations a ....read more
