ABSTRACT

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.
