Abstract

Abstract The author critically reviews commonly used statistics of food production, market supply, demand and consumption, and asserts the absolute necessity for a more discriminating form of analysis. He offers an alternative statistical and accounting technique designed to show a complete picture of the state of a country's overall food supply, and the food distribution to individual households at the same time.
