Causes of death across Timor 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 Timor.

Highlights of Timor 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 Timor gets their caloric supply from :
    • Carbohydrates : 82.76%82.76%
    • Fat : 26.43%26.43%
    • Plant protein : 9.14%9.14%
    • Animal protein : 4.08%4.08%
  • 22.40% increase in caloric supply : Currently Timor gets 2131/kilocalories per person per day worth of caloric supply when compared to 1741/kilocalories per person per day in Year 1961
  • National and World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations on vegetable intake is to range between 200-250g per day and in Timor average intake is 0.00 grams
  • National and World Health Organization (WHO) typically set a guideline of 200g Fruit Intake per day and in Timor average Fruit intake is 0.00grams
  • In Timor, average male height is in the decreasing trend and female height is in decreasing trend
  • 17.90% of population is suffering from obesity and this trend is continously increasing from last few years


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

Cancer Analysis


0.21% of Timor population was suffering from cancer i.e. 1295 people (average of years 2011-2016). Highest number of cancer patients deaths were recorded due to Colon & rectum cancer (Count : 49) and Breast cancer was also concerning with 45 deaths in a year. In last few years it has been observed that, people suffering from Gallbladder & biliary tract cancer have 0% of survival chance.Timor was really successful in diagnosing Kidney cancer where 89% of people were cured.Highest number of cancer patients i.e. 584 people were of age group 50-69 year olds.In 2016, 150 were suffering from Colon & rectum cancer out of which 49 people were dead. This means 32.67% death rate of people suffering from Colon & rectum cancer. This below data represents major cancer types in Timor and number of deaths due to particular cancer types :

    Highlights of Cancer in Timor :
  • 0.21 % of Timor population is suffering from cancer
  • Highest number of deaths were registered due to Colon & rectum cancer
  • Kidney cancer was most cured cancer in Timor
  • Colon & rectum cancer got lowest survival rate
