Investigating the Hunger Index

The Global Hunger Index has directed attention to several methodological issues in understanding hunger. An attempt is made to formulate a Karnataka District Hunger Index using a modified version of GHI’s methodology, developed by the International Food Policy Research Institute. The findings show that backward pockets in the state have a higher hunger index, which also holds for socially and economically backward populations. The database at the subregional level should be strengthened for a better understanding of hunger-related issues.
