Ecuador has one of the highest rates of chronic infant undernutrition in Latin America. We used statistical and spatial analyses to examine the distribution of food consumption and food poverty and to test and generate hypotheses of food poverty estimates at the district level. We showed that the food poor are concentrated in certain locations with a significant cluster identified in the central Andean region. Geographically weighted regression showed that the processes underlying food poverty in Ecuador were also spatially variable.
