DescriptionThis dataset shows the expenditure on food and drink by country. Information is given on expenditure as a percentage of total income and in dollars. what you can see from the data is areas where upto 50% of total household expenditure is devoted to food. These areas tend to be poorer developing nations in Africa. The developed countries spend less, as a percentage, on food, but obviously much more in terms of actual dollars. The data was sourced from the USDA Economic Research Service (http://www.ers.usda.gov/) and there is an interesting article here (http://www.vox.com/2014/7/6/5874499/map-heres-how-much-every-country-spends-on-food). The data was a flat excel document and has been linked to geographical boundaries in ArcGIS in order to display the data as map. GIS vector data. This dataset was first accessioned in the EDINA ShareGeo Open repository on 2014-07-08 and migrated to Edinburgh DataShare on 2017-02-22.
