28-The Ministry of Health Model refers to Israeli calculations about average Israeli consumption.
-The 'adjusted to culture and experience' column reflects how much food COGAT feels Palestinians in Gaza need, relative to average Israeli consumption, because of their distinct 'culture and experience'.
-Figures are given in the equivalent of 'trucks per day' of food entering Gaza.
-We can calculate the 'adjusted to culture & experience' value as a percentage of the Ministry of Health Model value by dividing.
(adjusted to culture number / ministry of health model number = adjusted to culture value as percentage of average Israel consumption)
-Meat/poultry/fish: 14 / 17.2 = 0.81, or approximately 81%.
-81% is 19% less than 100%. Therefore, COGAT feels Palestinians need 19% less meat than Israelis because of their distinct culture and experience.
