Subject:
Food stamps -- United States
Abstract:
This study addresses the concern that federal emphasis on reducing overpayment error might serve to increase underpayment error in the Food Stamp Program. This analysis uses food stamp error rates, by state, from 1980 through 1986, to examine whether there is any empirical basis for the concern.
