Causes of death across Georgia are changing because of Population Increase, Life Expectancy rise and Living Standard.On this below article we provide graphical representation of major causes of death in Georgia.

Highlights of Georgia 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 & definitions)

  • As per United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), average person in Georgia gets their caloric supply from :
    • Carbohydrates : 64.67%64.67%
    • Fat : 18.78%18.78%
    • Plant protein : 6.68%6.68%
    • Animal protein : 3.72%3.72%
  • 6.14% decrease in caloric supply : Currently Georgia gets 2905/kilocalories per person per day worth of caloric supply when compared to 3095/kilocalories per person per day in Year 1961
  • Cereals & Grains, Sugar and Dairy & Eggs are three major diet compositions in Georgia
  • Wheat, Maize and Barley are three major Cereal preferences in Georgia
  • National and World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations on vegetable intake is to range between 200-250g per day and in Georgia average intake is 158.22 grams
  • Oranges & Mandarines, Grapes and Bananas are three major Fruit Types Intake in Georgia

  • 57.20% of population is suffering from obesity and this trend is continously increasing from last few years
  • Average Male BMI in Georgia is in the range of obese and Average Female BMI is in range of obese (BMI = Body Mass Index - The WHO define a BMI <=18.5 as 'underweight'; 18.5 to 25 as 'normal/healthy'; 25.0 to 30.0 as 'obese')


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
