Abstract

About the Site

FAOSTAT is the Statistics Division of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. It compiles data - like annual yield and production value - on many essential crops from every country in the world. This allows trends to tracked over time. The data can easily be sorted by country, region, or world for quick comparison. FAOSTAT also collects relevant data on nutrition and hunger. For example, the number of undernourished people in the world has been steadily declining since 2005.
