of food aid. It is intended to provide a better understanding as to the
entire set of consequences resulting from food aid and food aid programs.
Chapter IV presents the ethnographic setting under which the con-
ditions of malnutrition occur in Guatemala and discusses the particular
communities and regions being used as sites of investigation. The first
section briefly describes the various aspects of Guatemala as a nation,
whereas the remaining two sections are intended to examine more closely
the two different regions under study.
The research design, sampling procedures, methodology and strate-
gies of analyses are discussed in Chapter V. Chapter VI examines the
data within the context of the aforementioned constraints and, then,
proceeds to look critically at these data using univariate and bivariate
tests of significance. As this is done, basic statistics demonstrating
the nutritional status of the sample population in comparison with the
Guatemalan national population are presented. Next, Chapter VI answers
the two primary questions presented earlier by close examination of the
results of both the bivariate and multivariate analyses.
Finally, in Chapter VII, the preceding work is briefly reviewed and,
then, the hypothesis dealing with the spiraling effect in malnutrition
with respect to this investigation is discussed in light of the results.
Chapter VII is concluded by "empirically-based programmatic statements"
as to the role of food aid and food aid programs as solutions to the
problems of hunger and malnutrition.
