The agricultural supply domain covers food commodities that have been converted back into primary equivalents:
  • Quantity
  • Dietary Energy
  • Proteins
  • Fats
  • Totals and per Capita

Food supply data is some of the most important data in FAOSTAT. In fact, this data is for the basis for estimation of global and national undernourishment assessment, when it is combined with parameters and other data sets.

This data has been the foundation of food balance sheets ever since they were first constructed. The data is accessed by both business and governments for economic analysis and policy setting, as well as being used by the academic community.

Consumption - Indicator Tables

The indicator tables presented here provide a useful reference for users seeking indicators by topic for all countries. The same country list is used even if the item is not relevant for a particular country. This means that the user can mix and match data of interest. In general, the tables present the basic data and then offer some analytical transformations (percentage of the world, ratio to some other indicator, etc.). All these tables are drawn for the FAO Statistical Yearbook available on line or from FAO Sales and Distribution.
