Prevalence of food insecurity and key demographics of the Hispanic population in two rural Wisconsin villages
MetadataShow full item record
This study investigated the prevalence offood insecurity in the Hispanic populations in two rural Wisconsin villages, as research has indicated some Hispanic populations have higher food insecurity prevalence than the general population. Two instruments, the Household Food Security Module and the Demographic and Socioeconomic Profile, were used to gather data about household food security status and household factors that might align with household food security status. Data were gathered from April through October, 2013. The results indicated a high food insecurity prevalence. Alignment between food security status and household factors was determined using cross tabulations. Household income, the presence of three or four children, being a single head of household, being a female head of household, specific field of employment (factory or farm work), and the use of food assistance programs aligned with household food security status.
