Schneider JM, et al. The use of multiple logistic regression to identify risk factors associated with anemia and iron deficiency in a convenience sample of 12- to 36-month-old children from low-income families. Am J Clin Nutr. Mar 2008;87(3):614-620.

This study evaluated risk factors associated with anemia and iron deficiency in a sample of children participating in or applying for WIC. The results revealed that current child WIC participation and maternal WIC participation during pregnancy were negatively associated with anemia and iron deficiency.
