Causes of death across Kyrgyzstan 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 Kyrgyzstan.

Highlights of Kyrgyzstan 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 Kyrgyzstan gets their caloric supply from :
    • Carbohydrates : 60.29%60.29%
    • Fat : 19.72%19.72%
    • Plant protein : 6.48%6.48%
    • Animal protein : 4.53%4.53%
  • 8.98% decrease in caloric supply : Currently Kyrgyzstan gets 2817/kilocalories per person per day worth of caloric supply when compared to 3095/kilocalories per person per day in Year 1961
  • Cereals & Grains, Dairy & Eggs and Sugar are three major diet compositions in Kyrgyzstan
  • Wheat, Maize and Rice are three major Cereal preferences in Kyrgyzstan
  • National and World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations on vegetable intake is to range between 200-250g per day and in Kyrgyzstan average intake is 414.33 grams
  • Apples, Oranges & Mandarines and Bananas are three major Fruit Types Intake in Kyrgyzstan

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
