The ERS Food Availability (Per Capita) Data System (FADS) includes three distinct but related data series on food and nutrient availability for consumption. The data serve as popular proxies for actual consumption at the national level. Food availability data are now updated through 2011, the most recent year available; these data are the foundation for the other two series. Loss-adjusted food availability data are also available through 2011 for most products but are preliminary estimates. Nutrient availability data are provided through 2006, as this data series has not yet been updated beyond 2006.
This record was taken from the USDA Enterprise Data Inventory that feeds into the https://data.gov catalog. Data for this record includes the following resources:
