The relationship between overpayments and underpayments in the food stamp program


Author:
Mills, Gregory B., Abt Associates, United States, and Food and Nutrition Service.
Year:
1988
Subject:
Food stamps
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.
