Food consumption pattern in the Marshall Islands based on the analysis of the 2019/20 Household Income and Expenditure Survey

This report presents the main results derived from the analysis of the food data collected in the 2019/20 HIES to inform current patterns on food and nutrient consumption in Marshall Islands. The analysis of the food insecurity experience scale data collected in the 2019/20 HIES reveals that more than one household in three is experiencing moderate or severe levels of food insecurity, which means they are lacking money or other resources to access foods in enough quantity or of good quality. The further analysis of the food data collected in the same survey finds that for around 5 percent of Marshallese, their dietary intake is lower than their basic dietary needs to maintain a normal active and healthy life.
