Calorie supply per capita is amount of food available for consumption, measured in kilocalories per capita per day. This figure is reached by dividing the total available food supply for human consumption by the population. This dataset tracks the calorie supply per capita in each country for calories available from crop products. Although these figures can be taken as average supply available for consumption, actual consumption by individuals can vary greatly.
