a PSC Research Project [ARCHIVE DISPLAY]
Investigator: Helen Levy
The proposed research will analyze Food Stamp eligibility and participation by elderly and near-elderly individuals using panel data spanning up to fifteen years. The specific aims of the project are to answer the following questions:
1. What are the dynamics of Food Stamp eligibility and participation among the elderly?
2. What determines variation in Food Stamp take-up over time for a given individual, including the role of an individual’s age and employment?
3. How has the age profile of Food Stamp take-up changed for different birth cohorts?
The answers to these questions have important implications both for the well-being of the elderly and for the future of the Food Stamp program.
