About

This indicator is the percentage of students in grades 6 to 12 who report skipping breakfast because they feel sick when they eat it.

Source

Calculations

This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who selected "I feel sick when I eat breakfast" by the "total number of respondents" to the question: If you do not eat breakfast, why do you skip breakfast: I eat breakfast every day, I don’t have time for breakfast, the bus comes too early, I sleep in, I’m not hungry in the morning, I feel sick when I eat breakfast, I’m trying to lose weight, there is nothing to eat at home or other
