Abstract:
Abstract: Food stamp redemption data (fiscal year 1978) are presented in an update of an earlier report; the importance of the socioeconomic characteristics of households in the redemption stores' immediate areas is explored. Sources of data and methods of comparison are described. Socioeconomic characteristics of the households in the trading areas include: proportion of white collar to blue collar workers, proportion of households without a car, consecutive years ofresidence, median household income, and ethnic composition. Relation of socioeconomic factors and ratios of food stamp redemptions to food sales are analyzed statistically. A comparison of food stamp redemptions and cash/check receiptsby kind and size of store is made. Finally, variations in regions (1978) and changes among and within regions (1976-1978) are described.
