Abstract: Abstract: This paper makes an attempt to look at health deprivation of children in India and its major states. Recent round of National Family Health Survey (NFHS) presents a gloomy picture of child health in India. In this paper a simple index named 'Achievement of Child Health Index' has been constructed to show the progress made by different states as far as child health is concerned. Findings reflect that some of the socio-economically poor states are lagging behind the developed states of the country in terms of child health. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
