  2. bFor all calculations, the direction of the economic and health variable was negative
  3. cBased on the average prevalence of consumption (%)
  4. dBased on the median frequency of consumption (times/day)
  5. en is 24 when the monetary poverty data, which are not available for nine geodemographic units, are necessary for the calculation of the index
