The Small Area Estimation of Food Insecurity and Undernutrition in Nepal report is a collaborative effort between the Central Bureau of Statistics, National Planning Commission, World Food Programme, World Bank, UNICEF and Massey University, New Zealand, to produce district- and sub-district-level estimates and maps of food poverty, low kilocalorie intake, undernutrition (stunting, wasting and underweight) and diarrhea for Nepal.
The report is based on detailed analysis of the National Population and Housing Census (NPHC) 2011, Nepal Living Standards Survey III (NLSS-III) 2010/11, Nepal Demographic and Health Survey (NDHS) 2011 and the latest Geographic Information System (GIS) information.
The report provides an update to the first small area estimation study in Nepal, which was published in 2006 by the National Planning Commission and Central Bureau of Statistics with the support of the World Food Programme and World Bank.

The Nepal Thematic Report on Food Security and Nutrition 2013, updates the status of food security and nutrition in Nepal, and analyzes key food security trends over the past 15 years. This report is based primarily on the findings of the Nepal Living Standards Survey (NLSS) 2010/11, which covered 5,988 households and included anthropometric data collected from approximately 2,500 preschool children under 60 months of age. The 2010/11 NLSS is the third of its kind in Nepal (following surveys undertaken in 1995/96 and 2003/04) and represents a comprehensive and reliable source of information on the status of national and regional food security and the nutritional status of the population.
