This study examined the nutritional deprivation of Paraguayan households (understood as households access to diverse diets) and investigated the association between nutritional deprivation and socioeconomics characteristics in a large sample. We used an extension of Alkire-Foster methodology, a technique widely employed in multidimensional poverty measurement, to calculate both the incidence and intensity of nutritional deprivation.
