ABSTRACT:
Back ground: Anaemia is one of the most frequently observed nutritional deficiency disease in the world today. Objective: to know the epidemiological profile of anaemia in working women. Study variables: grades of anaemia, type of work and socio economic status of the working women Statistical analysis: Proportion, Chi square test. Observations and discussion: High prevalence of anaemia was observed in women working in administrative section 23 (82.10%) followed by sweepers 75 (73.5%) and nurses 96 (68.5%). The difference was found to be statistically significant (x2=30.9, d.f =3, p=0.00000089). It was observed that anaemia was more prevalent in lower class (83.63%) as compared to upper class (53.33%).The difference was found to be statistically significant( x2 = 21.1, d.f.=2,p=0.0000262). Recommendations: To conduct prophylactic programs for the prevention of anaemia and nutritional education in the community as a whole and working women to bring out behaviour change.
