Hi guys! Just want to ask on reference materials that I can read which would help me understand basic concepts on nutrition surveillance system and probably advance readings also. Thanks.

You might like to look at this post.

The repeated cross-sectional survey approach is common. The tricks are ...

(1) To get the timing right. I think the minimum is two survey (one during "hunger" season and one after harvest).

(2) Keep the system cheap and simple. This is related to (1) but it also means using a small sample survey method.

(3) Select meaning survey area (e.g. livelihood zones).

(4) Analyse and report as soon as possible.
