About

This indicator is the percentage of students in grades 6 to 12 who report skipping breakfast because they are not hungry in the morning.

Source

Calculations

This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who selected "I’m not hungry in the morning" 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
