In reply to Rania, I can only calculate per individual; I don't have the data for average family size in Iraq. Looking at Phase XII of Oil for Food (30 May 2002 - 25 November 2002) - this is slightly less than 6 months, but I'm calculating on the basis that it is half a year - "$3.01 billion will be available to the Programme" (the 90-day report on Phase XII, at: http://www.un.org/Depts/oip/background/latest/phaseXII-90.pdf ) The population of Iraq is 23.3 million (according to the World Almanac, 2002). So for the half year for Phase XII, the OIP will have $3010/23.3 per person = $129.2. So per year, this comes to $258.4 per person. Or 71 cents per day. Hope this helps.
