International Food Security

This dataset is the basis for the International Food Security Assessment, 2017-27 released in July 2017. 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. 

Note: The dataset associated with the International Food Security Assessment, 2018-28 will be released by October 31, 2018. The content of the dataset will be different from previous years.
