Good nutrition is an essential component of life. Undernutrition is the root cause of death of over 3.5 million children under the age of five in India. To address this issue of malnutrition, though overarching national policy is desirable, it may not be effective if the root cause of malnutrition varies across regions of the country. In this context, the attempt made in this paper is two-fold. First, weather the Indian States can be clustered on four anthropometric parameters of malnutrition. Second, whether the clusters formed thus, exhibit different explaining factors for malnutrition. The Indian-DHS (Demographic Health Survey) Data is used for the analysis. The results thus arrived would help policy-makers to have a targeted approach to malnutrition in different clusters of states.

Va Dominic, Dr. Deepa Gupta, Sangita Khare, and Aggarwal, Ab, “Investigation of chronic disease correlation using data mining techniques”, in 2015 2nd International Conference on Recent Advances in Engineering and Computational Sciences, RAECS 2015, 2015.[Abstract]

A disease is an abnormal condition that affects the structure and function of one or more parts of the body. It may be caused by various factors, external and internal dysfunctions. There is a trend of various chronic diseases in any society. The major concern is that these chronic diseases are leading to many other diseases in future. An attempt to explore the correlation of various chronic diseases has become a necessity. This can be achieved by using data mining techniques, which help to derive knowledge about the affects of a particular chronic disease on the other chronic diseases. Since there is growing trend of diabetes and ischemic heart disease in the society, in this paper the focus is to investigate the effect of these diseases on the other chronic diseases using the ICD9 diagnostic codes. To achieve this goal various types of data mining techniques are used. The conclusion is an optimal set of ICD9 diagnostic codes associated with individuals having diabetes or ischemic heart disease. These codes are then investigated based on the human anatomic systems i.e. Circulatory system, Respiratory system, Nervous system, Musculoskeletal system, Renal system and Neoplasm and their relevance is justified. © 2015 IEEE.
