Abstract:
Percentage of annual per consumer unit consumption of food is higher for urban sample households for all the food items except cereals in Kohima District. Cereals accounts for highest quantity among the food items consumed. Rural sample households consume more cereals due to high price of non-food grains and higher energy requirement due to heavy manual work. In rural areas, the percentage of annual per consumer unit expenditure is higher for food items, while it is reverse in urban areas. This holds true for Kohima District. In Kohima District, the overall calorie intake per day per consumer unit derived from the consumption of all food items is higher for urban sample households as compared to rural sample households. Overall calorie intake per consumer unit derived from the consumption of all food items is found to be lower than the recommended RDA in all group sizes for both rural and urban sample households.
