Accuracy[edit]

The data shown below represent per capita amounts of meat eaten by humans.

The data in this table can be compared to List of countries by meat consumption which are simply figures for carcass mass availability (with "carcass mass" for poultry estimated as ready-to-cook mass), divided by population. This includes the amount eaten by humans, as well as losses, which include bones, losses in retail and food service or home preparation (including trim and cooking), spoilage and “downstream” waste, and amounts consumed by pets (compare dressed weight).
