Abstract


This work assesses the current level of food security in Ukrainian households according to the methodology proposed by the authors. The methodology developed includes separate indicators for monitoring SDG1 and SDG2 in Ukraine and indicators proposed by the authors. The survey identified vulnerable categories of households based on their level of food security: households located in rural areas; households with four or more persons; households with four or more children; and households with average per capita total income per month below the statutory subsistence level. The results of the study confirm the hypothesis that the level and structure of food consumption is significantly influenced by the economic affordability of products. Households in rural areas as well as households with large numbers of persons have significantly lower incomes than other household groups, and these households are characterized by the lowest quality of food.
