What’s on Your Table? How America’s Diet Has Changed Over the Decades. Pew Research Center. Drew DeSilver. December 13, 2016
How do Americans really eat, and how has that changed over time? The author analyzed data from the USDA’s Food Availability (Per Capita) Data System, or FADS, to find out. (Specifically, he used food availability adjusted for waste, spoilage and other loss as a proxy for consumption.) While the nation’s eating habits don’t change all that much from year to year, looking at them over 40 or more years shows some significant changes. [Note: contains copyrighted material].
