This dataset contains the change in the cost of a food basket in relation to a previous period (Periods of 3 months). The change of the cost of basic food basket is calculated by comparing the seasonally adjusted cost of the food basket with the cost in the reference period (previous quarter or baseline), as percentage change. The change is considered normal when the percentage change is between 0 and 3%, moderate when it is between 3 and 10%, high when it is between 10 and 25%, and severe above 25%. Note that the countries included here only include those monitored by WFP.
