Causes of death across Slovenia 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 Slovenia.

Highlights of Slovenia 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)

  • Cereals & Grains, Oils & Fats and Dairy & Eggs are three major diet compositions in Slovenia
  • Wheat, Maize and Rice are three major Cereal preferences in Slovenia
  • National and World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations on vegetable intake is to range between 200-250g per day and in Slovenia average intake is 220.11 grams
  • Apples, Grapes and Oranges & Mandarines are three major Fruit Types Intake in Slovenia
  • National and World Health Organization (WHO) typically set a guideline of 200g Fruit Intake per day and in Slovenia average Fruit intake is 321.51grams
  • In Slovenia, average male height is in the increasing trend and female height is in increasing trend
  • 60.70% of population is suffering from obesity and this trend is continously increasing from last few years
  • Average Male BMI in Slovenia 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
