The Analysis of Food Poverty: An Illustration from Kenya

Eric Crawford, Erik Thorbecke


The study describes a methodology which is used to estimate
the magnitude and regional distribution of food poverty among Kenyan
smallholders. One-fourth of all smalll1Older-households were estimated
to have a food intake below the recommended daily allowance. Notable
differences were found in the provincial incidence of food poverty.
Despite these inter province differences, considerable variation in food
consumption levels appeared within regions. Some possible causal factors
underlying the prevailing pattern of food poverty are brought out.
