Post a reply: Looking for a bell-shaped curve illustrating a shift to the left on population level regarding anthropometry during famine

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

Hi colleagues

In many countries, the, e.g., BMI is normally distributed at a population level. In times of hunger, in large populations, this bell curve shape can move to the left, everyone is getting e.g. lower BMI. I am looking for an illustration that shows that anthropometry (e.g., BMI) shifts to the left on population level during famine or extreme food shortages. I know it exists as I have seen it before but cannot remember where. It does not matter which geographical location. I hope you can help me. Mija
