Causes of death across Austria are changing due to Population Increase, Life Expectancy rise and Living Standard.On this below article we provide graphical represntation of major causes of death in Austria.

Highlights of Austria BMI and Diet Compositions

Comprehensive data on food supply and consumption is published by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Data was analyzed by The Global Graph and is published in these below Highlights, Graphs and Tables (Data Quality & Definations)
  • As per United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), average person in Austria gets their caloric supply from :
    • Carbohydrates : 56.70%56.70%
    • Fat : 48.07%48.07%
    • Animal protein : 7.88%7.88%
    • Plant protein : 5.43%5.43%
  • 18.08% increase in caloric supply : Currently Austria gets 3768/kilocalories per person per day worth of caloric supply when compared to 3191/kilocalories per person per day in Year 1961
  • Oils & Fats, Cereals & Grains and Sugar are three major diet compositions in Austria
  • Wheat, Maize and Rye are three major Cereal preferences in Austria

Breakdown of the average per capita intake of cereals by specific cereal-based commodity types, measured in kilocalories per person per day. This figure measures the primary equivalent of all food products derived from a given commodity (e.g. "wheat" represents the primary equivalent of its derived products). Data refers to cereal food supply at the consumer level but does not account for consumer wastage in
