In many developed countries, insufficient birth weight (IBW) has been decreasing, but in developing countries these rates continue to be high and very few studies have assessed the factors associated with IBW infants and their long term consequences. The main objective is to investigate the possible factors associated with IBW in two cohorts of singleton newborn infants in one of the cities of Brazil, the first study in 1978-1979 and the second in 1994 and to identity the causes of the increase in IBW that occurred during this period.
