Socioeconomic gradients in child development in very young children: Evidence from India, Indonesia, Peru, and Senegal

Researchers Lia  Fernald,Patricia Kariger, Melissa Hidrobo, and Paul Gertler show that in four low- or middle-income countries, children under 2 years from the wealthiest households had higher developmental scores and better growth than children from the poorest households while controlling for maternal education and relevant covariates. Similarly, having a mother in the highest category of education was also associated with significantly better performance on the EASQ in three of four countries while controlling for household wealth and relevant covariates.
