## Case#02:

Meat is a consumable food that appears in various forms in Pakistanlivestock markets including beef, mutton and poultry. Pakistan livestock sector has 50% share in agricultural GDP. Meat and poultry are great sources of protein. They also provide lots of other nutrients like iodine, iron, zinc, vitamins (especially B12), and essential fatty acids. The high cost of a nutritious diet can worsen nutrition outcomes, especially for low-income households. Consumer Price Index (CPI) is used to assess the situation of Inflation. The monthly price review shows the prices of 53 items, including beef, mutton and chicken in 17 major cities of Pakistan. The information about nominal prices and CPI of beef, mutton and chicken for the year 2019 and year 2020 is given below:

 Item Unit Year Nominal Price in Faisalabad CPI Real Price Beef Kg April- 2019 375.00 336.48 April- 2020 450.00 372.48 ? Mutton Kg April- 2019 950.00 350.53 April- 2020 1000.00 380.63 ? Chicken,live Kg April- 2019 179.88 225.63 April- 2020 128.00 168.32 ?
