This dataset is the basis for the International Food Security Assessment, 2013-2023 released in June 2013. This annual ERS report projects food availability and access for 76 low- and middle-income countries over a 10-year period. The dataset includes annual country-level data on area, yield, production, nonfood use, trade, and consumption for grains and root and tuber crops (combined as R&T in the documentation tables), food aid, total value of imports and exports, gross domestic product, and population compiled from a variety of sources.
Data for each of the 76 countries for 1980-2012 are presented in the following eight regional Excel workbooks. Data for all 76 countries can be downloaded in a single CSV file in a format suitable for importing it into any database programs.
