Description

This project seeks to identify multiple dietary patterns, along with predictors of belonging in each pattern (e.g. land use, income) and associated health outcomes (e.g. cardiovascular morbidity and mortality) in the Philippines.

Project details

The study will use latent class analysis to group individuals according to the types of food they eat in various quantities, and then investigate the characteristics of each group.

Findings from this study will enable links to be drawn between agriculture, local diets, and health outcomes in the Philippines, as well as an analysis of how these have changed over time. Results are not available yet.
