Economic Shocks, Neighborhood Food Infrastructure and Very Low Food Security among Children

a PSC Research Project

Investigators:   Sheldon H. Danziger, H. Luke Shaefer

Drawing on two nationally representative data sets and a recent panel survey of a representative sample of metropolitan Detroit, we will explore the extent to which two types of adverse economic shocks ? job loss and parental divorce or separation ? experienced by low-income households with children are associated with increased risk of very low food security among children. We will further explore the importance of food assistance program participation and access to the local food resource infrastructure as key moderators of these relationships among low-income households in Detroit. To our knowledge, this is the first study to examine child food security, economic shocks, and access to local food resources.

Funding Period: 05/25/2012 to 05/09/2014
