The Food Security data collection currently consists of data sets of food insecurity hotspots and twentieth century crop statistics.
The Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET) Food Insecurity Hotspots data set is based on sub-national food security analysis in five regions: Central America and the Caribbean; Central Asia; East Africa; Southern Africa; and West Africa. Data for each region identify the intensity and frequency of food insecurity between 2009 and 2019 as well as hotspot areas that have experienced consecutive food insecurity events, and consist of grids at 250 meter spatial resolution.
The Twentieth Century Crop Statistics data set consists of national or subnational maize and wheat production, yield, and harvested area statistics for all available years for the period 1900-2017. It combines a new digitization of crop statistics from Italy, Spain, Indonesia, China, Mexico, Uruguay, Chile, Sweden, and Morocco with existing, publicly available, digitized data sets from India, Australia, the United States, Canada, Southern Brazil, Argentina, England, Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Spain, Portugal, France, the Netherlands, and South Africa.
