Food Stamp Use Among the Elderly: Evidence from Panel Data

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.

Funding Period: 10/01/2007 to 12/31/2008

Country of Focus: USA
