Relationship Between Proportion of Food Expenditure and Consumption of Energy and Protein

Effendi and Kesuma Sayuti


Food consumption has affected directly to human qualities. This study was carried out by using the data from “BPS” Indonesia. The data was analyzed by using a Pearson Correlation and paired t-test. The results shows that there is no significantly difference between energy consumption and proportion of food expenditure (r = 0.105 and p = 0.334); protein consumption and proportion of food expenditure (r = 0.129 and p = 0.234); but there is correlation between energy consumption and protein consumption (r = 0.892; p = 0.00). The correlation is very strong. By using the paired t-test it can be seen that proportion of food expenditure with energy consumption (p = 0.00) and energy consumption by consumption of protein (p = 0.00) were statistically significantly different, but the proportion of food expenditure with consumption of protein (p = 0.190) were not statistically different.
