The food dollar series measures annual expenditures by U.S. consumers on domestically produced food. This data series is composed of three primary series—the marketing bill series, the industry group series, and the primary factor series—that shed light on different aspects of the food supply chain. The three series show three different ways to split up the same food dollar. All statistics are reported as a percentage of an average annual food dollar expenditure. Data are available from 1993 to 2008 and will be updated annually. Note: In Nominal data, Values that are 0 are not available in the original source data. This occurs for the calculated categories 'Farm share' and 'Farm to non-Farm' and for other categories in years prior to 1997. In real data, Values that are 0 are not available in the original source data. This occurs for the calculated categories 'Farm share' and 'Farm to non-Farm'.
Historical versions of this dataset since 23 February 2011 are available.
