  1. Values may differ for food spending from the LCMS report due to differing treatment of outliers and possible, unobserved data cleaning or adjustments by the Central Statistical Office. Due to difficulties with the authors’ 2006 agricultural production data, they present the figures for maize production from the LCMS Survey Report 2006 and 2010.
