India's National Nutrition Monitoring Bureau (NNMB) carried out a diet and nutrition assessment survey in rural communities in eight states in 1994. The survey was linked with a human development survey conducted by the country's National Council for Applied Economic Research (NCAER). NNMB acquired diet and nutrition data on a subsample of the NCAER sample. 

The NNMB survey included anthropometric measurements, clinical examinations, dietary assessment, and collection of sociodemographic information.
