Food stamp fraud -- United States and Food stamps -- United States
Abstract:
Discusses trafficking in food stamps in light of new empirical data which became available in the last few years. This report combines recently-collected investigative evidence on trafficking violations with data collected as part of a new study of authorized retailers. The combination of these two data bases enables the Food and Consumer Service to make a preliminary estimate of the prevalence of trafficking and begin to identify where the trafficking problem is most serious. The estimates are based on analysis of outcomes in over 11,000 completed undercover investigations.
