Subject:
Food stamps and Cost and standard of living
Abstract:
This report examines the capacity of the CEX (Consumer Expenditure Surveys) to address the policy questions: how do low-income and higher-income households allocate their income among major expenditure categories, and do the assumptions about the expenditure behavior of households which are embodied in the food stamp benefit formula reflect the actual behavior of low-income households?
