Corriere della Sera – La Lettura
Food expenditure and calories
Artwork for Visual Data, the column on "La Lettura", the cultural supplement of "Corriere Della Sera".
The visualization shows a selection of 31 countries based on the share of consumer expenditure spent on food products in 2016. The first 15 and the last 15 countries of this ranking have been visualised (plus Italy). The value is measured as the percentage of total consumer expenditure per person. For each country is visualized the trend (1961-2013) of daily per capita food supply, measured as kilocalories per person per day. The countries are sorted by nominal GDP per capita.
