The Nutritional Assessment conducted in 2003 assessed the nutritional status of children ages 6-59 months across West Bank and Gaza Strip in Palestine. The survey measured child nutritional status after a year of food aid, subsets of children vulnerable to malnutrition, the quality of food consumed, and food security. Data were collected through a household-based survey. The sampling frame was based off of the 1997 census. The survey canvassed 3,086 children from 2,486 households.
