Book chapter on the relevance of measures of maternal thinness for predicting economic crisis in a nation. Crises not only result in an immediate impact in Asian countries but can also result in a 'lost generation' in countries such as Indonesia. Using the Indonesian example, this chapter shows that crises are often best characterized and tracked by using micronutrient and maternal malnutrition, rather than childhood malnutrition, as indicators. It illustrates that these types of crises are felt more strongly among the urban poor than among the rural population. This is a chapter from the book Preventive Nutrition: The Comprehensive Guide for Health Professionals, Third edition.
