These family food datasets contain more detailed information than the ‘Family Food’ report and mainly provide statistics from 2001 onwards. The UK household purchases and the UK household expenditure spreadsheets include statistics from 1974 onwards. These spreadsheets are updated annually when a new edition of the ‘Family Food’ report is published.
The ‘purchases’ spreadsheets give the average quantity of food and drink purchased per person per week for each food and drink category. The ‘nutrient intake’ spreadsheets give the average nutrient intake (eg energy, carbohydrates, protein, fat, fibre, minerals and vitamins) from food and drink per person per day. The ‘expenditure’ spreadsheets give the average amount spent in pence per person per week on each type of food and drink. Several different breakdowns are provided in addition to the UK averages including figures by region, income, household composition and characteristics of the household reference person.
Each year we compile summary data files from the diary entries, and this summary data is used to create the datasets. We call these ‘codebanks’. This year we are again providing some of these files in machine readable .csv format for anyone to re-use. We are offering the files relating to the datasets we have updated with 2018/19 data and below are the 2017/18 codebank files. Previous year codebank files are now available on request. If you find these codebank files useful please let us know.
