Global Hunger Index 2011 by Severity

Infographic

The Global Hunger Index (GHI) is based on three equally weighted
indicators:

  • the proportion of undernourished as a percentage of the population (reflecting the share of the population with insufficient dietary energy intake);
  • the prevalence of underweight in children under the age of five (indicating the proportion of children suffering from low weight for their age);
  • the under-five mortality rate (partially reflecting the fatal synergy between inadequate dietary intake and unhealthy environments).
