Four Harvard Pop Center researchers, including research associate Iván Mejía-Guevara, PhD, recent doctoral program graduate Aditi Krishna, PhD, former Bell Fellow Daniel Corsi, PhD, and faculty member SV Subramanian, PhD, are authors on a paper published in the Journal of South Asian Development that evaluates child undernutrition in India by level – individual, community and state – so that policies can more effectively target these determinants.
Ichiro Kawachi, SV Subramanian (Subu), Nancy Krieger, and David R. Williams are among the top 25 most productive researchers in the field of health inequalities, according to a study published in the journal Social Science & Medicine. The four Harvard Pop Center faculty members have published 462 studies, in total, on health inequalities between 1966 – 2014. In addition, the study ranked Social Science & Medicine, with co-editors-in-chief Kawachi and Subramanian, as the most productive journal in the field of health inequalities, accounting for 38% of all publications on the topic. Publications on health inequalities by Kawachi, Krieger and Williams were among the top 25 most cited.

Although previous studies have found there to be a female disadvantage in India when it comes to mortality, allocation of food within households, and healthcare coverage, the researchers in this study did not find there to be consistent evidence of female disadvantage in nutritional status based on using measures of anthropometric (height/weight for age, and stunting/wasting/underweight) status.
Recent Pop Center Research Fellow Laura Yasaitis, PhD, Visiting Scientist Mariana Arcaya, ScD, and Faculty Member SV Subramanian (Subu), PhD, have authored a paper published in the international journal Health & Place that offers a rare side-by-side comparison of methods to create local population health estimates (in this case, acute myocardial infarction rates) from administrative data (Medicare claims data in California).
