In the current issue of the Journal, Smuts et al report the results of a study of the socio-demographic profiles and anthropometric status of pre-school children in four rural districts, two in the Eastern Cape (EC) and two in Kwazulu-Natal (KZN). Although data were collected on 1000 children in each district up to the age of 71 months, only data of children up to the age of 59 months (under the age of five years) are reported. The study was carried out in 2003 as a baseline situation assessment prior to the introduction of an intervention programme.
