Dr. Jean Buzby is an economist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Economic Research Service. For the past seven years, she has had oversight responsibility for the ERS Food Availability Data System, which provides estimates of the amounts of several hundred foods available for human consumption. She has led initiatives to update the hundreds of food loss assumptions used in this data system, which are estimates of actual food consumption per the individual. Since 1990, her primary area of work at ERS has been food safety research. Dr. Buzby is featured in the USDA's ERS presentation "100 Years of Eating In America" Food Availability Data, 1909-2008.
