Abstract

We assessed the food security situation in Bangladesh based on 2011-2012 Bangladesh Integrated Household Survey data using two commonly measured indicators: Food Consumption Score (FCS) and Household Hunger Scale (HHS). Results obtained from ordered probit regression models indicated that remittances play an important role to improve the food security of a household. Other significant variables in the model were wage earn outside of farm, male operated household, remittance, and literacy. Increasing income from other than the agriculture sector significantly raises the probability of a household being food secure. Government should make the agriculture sector strong and provide employment opportunities for households to work outside of the farm.
