Causes of death across Kazakhstan 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 Kazakhstan.

Highlights of Kazakhstan 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 Kazakhstan gets their caloric supply from :
    • Carbohydrates : 53.88%53.88%
    • Fat : 39.12%39.12%
    • Animal protein : 7.37%7.37%
    • Plant protein : 5.09%5.09%
  • 5.46% increase in caloric supply : Currently Kazakhstan gets 3264/kilocalories per person per day worth of caloric supply when compared to 3095/kilocalories per person per day in Year 1961
  • Cereals & Grains, Oils & Fats and Dairy & Eggs are three major diet compositions in Kazakhstan
  • Wheat, Rice and Barley are three major Cereal preferences in Kazakhstan
  • National and World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations on vegetable intake is to range between 200-250g per day and in Kazakhstan average intake is 540.25 grams
  • Apples, Oranges & Mandarines and Grapes are three major Fruit Types Intake in Kazakhstan

  • 53.90% of population is suffering from obesity and this trend is continously increasing from last few years
  • Average Male BMI in Kazakhstan 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
