An initial set of indicators aiming to capture various aspects of food insecurity.
The choice of the indicators has been informed by expert judgment and the availability of data with sufficient coverage to enable comparisons across regions and over time. Many of these indicators are produced and published elsewhere by FAO and other international organizations. They are reported here in a single database with the aim of building a wide food security information system. More indicators will be added to this set as more data will become available.
Indicators are classified along the four dimension of food security -- availability, access, utilization and stability.
