Dynamic Participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and its Impact on Child Overweight

a PSC Research Project [ARCHIVE DISPLAY]

Investigators:   Daniel Almirall, Narayan Sastry, Robert F. Schoeni

The goal of this project is to examine the effects of dynamic participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) on child and adolescent overweight. The problem of obesity and overweight in America has reached epidemic proportions, with almost one-fifth of US children and adolescents classified as overweight in 2003-2004 [1-2]. We will use panel data from the nationally-representative Child Development Supplement (CDS) to the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID). The population of interest is children in families eligible to receive SNAP benefits.

Funding Period: 05/19/2010 to 02/28/2012

Country of Focus: USA
