I wonder if these statistis have been compared with National Accounts given the difficulty of valuing the important part of non-commercialized agricultural products used in home-produced consumption, or traded in informal domestic markets. Perhaps the comparison of private consumption in household surveys vs. National Accounts, for countries with differents degrees of reliance on home-produced food could give a hint of different biases and clarify the issue of whether the quantities of rice/maize which can be purchased at international prices to survive poverty are realistic.
