About 37.1% of households enjoy food security in Cameroon while the remaining 35.7% of households have limited food security. It was found that at least 30% of Cameroonian household in rural and urban areas remain vulnerable to food insecurity. The present study attempts to examine the effect of entitlement and identify the determinants of food insecurity in Cameroon household. Data are taken from Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) 2017 collected by the National institute of statistics (INS) of Cameroon. A wealth index was constructed from DHS data and we had employed FANTA III Household Dietary Diversity Score (HDDS) to group food insecurity household. We estimated the determinants of household food insecurity with a one predictor model .i.e. wealth index and a full predictor model including control variables. The main tools of analysis for this study consist of descriptive statistics and partial proportional odds model. Results showed that 22.69% of Cameroon household is severely food insecure and 20.4% are poorer. Regression results revealed that wealth index is highly significant (P<0.01 and P<0.05) determinant of household food insecurity in Cameroon. Control variables such as marital status, number of under-five children and gender of the household head were found to be significant determinant of household food insecurity in the study area. While, predictors like place of residence and household size were found to be non-significant determinants of food insecurity in this study.

DOI: 10.37421/2375-4389.2021.s2.376

Given the role and importance of Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) indicators for businesses' performance and profitability, the question arises why no research has been undertaken internationally in this regard. Therefore, the main purpose of the present study is to investigate the impact of GEM indicators on the financial performance of top companies in the world. For this purpose, 176 top companies in the world from 2013 to 2018 that were profitable among the top 200 companies each year were selected as the statistical population. World Bank annual reports, GEM reports and Fortune reports were used to collect the data. Also the data analysis was done according to the panel data method using Eviews software. The results show that in general, there is a positive relationship between GEM index and financial performance of top companies in the world. On the other hand, the per capita income of the countries in which the top companies belonged was considered as a control variable and the results shows that the per capita income has a positive and significant relationship with the financial performance of the top companies in the world.
