Pitt uses innovative data methods to consider environmental-health issues in Bangladesh. This project assembles, collects and analyzes multiple rounds of survey data from Bangladesh, providing family-based and individual panel information on the long-term health and productivity effects of childhood nutritional intakes, indoor air pollution, and health interventions over a 25-year span. As part of a long-term longitudinal survey on nutrition and economic activity he has collected, among other things, toenails, which provide a record of exposure to arsenic. These data will be used to examine the health and productivity consequences of exposure to arsenic in the study population.
