Understanding the nature and dimension of the food problem and the policies available to alleviate it has been the focal point of the Food and Agriculture Programme (FAP) at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) since the program began in 1977.

The major food problem in the world is the inadequate food consumption by many people in the world in spite of adequate food production in the world. Understanding the relationship between income and food consumption patterns is critical in assessing nutritional impacts of alternative policies on the society.

The authors present here an analysis of Kenyan household consumption survey data to describe the relationship between level of nutrition and various social and economic variables.

We are grateful to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations for partially supporting this study.
