Child height is an important indicator of human capital and human development. Recent medical evidence suggests that exposure to poor sanitation - and speci cally to widespread open defecation - can pose a critical threat to child growth. This paper identi es an effect of open defecation on child height from within-province changes in the local area open defecation to which children are exposed.
