Food Security in children
Various household characteristics are also examined as part of the annual report. “Those include household composition. So single parents married parents, households with children, households without children. We also look at race and ethnicity of household heads, and we examine food insecurity by household income as well.” Coleman Jensen notes similar patterns over years within this year's edition. “So, for example, we tend to see somewhat higher food insecurity rates for single parent households. And particular female headed households with children are single mother households. We also see somewhat higher food insecurity rates for single fathers with children, and we see somewhat higher food insecurity rates for women and men living alone abroad.
