Hunger Rates by Country 2024

  • The data for the prevalence of undernourishment and the number of people undernourished represent a 3-year average (2020-2022).
  • For countries where the rate is 2.5 or lower, consider the value as a minimal approximation rather than a precise measurement. The same applies for 0.1 in millions for number of people undernourished.
  • The Global Hunger Index (GHI) compiles the values of four indicators: Undernourishment (1/3), Child Mortality (1/3), Child Stunting (1/6), and Child Wasting (1/6), and places the result on a 100-point scale.
  • The best possible GHI score is 0 (no hunger) and the worst is 100. Scores from 20-34.9 are considered Serious, 35-49.9 are Alarming, and anything higher Extremely Alarming.
  • Countries with GHI scores below 5 are collectively assigned an index value of 5, without individual ranks.
