Average value of food production (constant I$ per person) (3-year average)

This indicator is calculated by FAOSTAT/ESS and is part of the FAO Suite of Food Security Indicators -- Dimension: availability (http://www.fao.org/economic/ess/ess-fs/ess-fadata/en/#.WTlX9BPytPU). The indicator expresses the food net production value (in constant 2004-06 international dollars), as estimated by FAO and published by FAOSTAT, in per capita terms. It provides a cross country comparable measure of the relative economic size of the food production sector in the country. The indicator is calculated in three year averages, from 1990-92 to 2011-13, to reduce the impact of possible errors in estimated production, due to the difficulties in properly accounting of stock variations in major food (Source: Faostat - http://www.fao.org/faostat/en/#data/FS).
