2010 Percentage of Income Spent on Food, Per Country

Here is a fresh compilation, with data from National Geographic and Euro Monitor. The 'Food %' column shows the percentage of income spent on good as a percentage of gross income, per capita.

Lower numbers mean that those countries spend more of their income on non food items, not necessarily a good thing. That includes housing, but in general it means non essentials.

Actually, the number has to do with the supply of food. Since there is a surplus in the US the food costs less, therefore less of our income is spent on food!
