SOURCES OF FOOD PROVISION IN RURAL HOUSEHOLDS AT THE TURN OF THE XXI CENTURY
Languages of publication
The changes of food provision sources of households are closely linked to the fluctuations of price and supply levels on the food market and to the income of consumers. During the first stage of system transition the phenomenon of renaturalisation took place in all types of households, especially in those connected to agriculture. Collected unpublished GUS data (1995-2002) were used to carry out an in-depth analysis of the provision of food-stuffs in different population groups at the turn of the century. In these years the share of unearned (non-monetary) sources of food provision showed an overall decrease. In rural households the level of self-supply in 2002 was still high – 39% of total food consumption in households of farmers and 26% in households of employees-farmers. In comparison self-supply in the households of employees was marginal and reached 1,5% of total food consumption in terms of value. Key words: food consumption, households, sources of food provision, self-supply, market purchases.
