Hungary - Food deficit
Depth of the food deficit (kilocalories per person per day)
The value for Depth of the food deficit (kilocalories per person per day) in Hungary was 9.00 as of 2012. As the graph below shows, over the past 20 years this indicator reached a maximum value of 10.00 in 2005 and a minimum value of 2.00 in 1992.
Definition: The depth of the food deficit indicates how many calories would be needed to lift the undernourished from their status, everything else being constant. The average intensity of food deprivation of the undernourished, estimated as the difference between the average dietary energy requirement and the average dietary energy consumption of the undernourished population (food-deprived), is multiplied by the number of undernourished to provide an estimate of the total food deficit in the country, which is then normalized by the total population.
