This indicator is part of the FAO Suite of Food Security Indicators (2017) in the dimension "availability".
The indicator expresses the food net production value (in constant 2004-06 international dollars), as estimated by FAO and published by FAOSTAT, in per capita terms.
It provides a cross country comparable measure of the relative economic size of the food production sector in the country.
The indicator is calculated in three year averages, from 1990-92 to 2011-13, to reduce the impact of possible errors in estimated production, due to the difficulties in properly accounting of stock variations in major food.
