Jinhee Kim, Swarn Chatterjee, Yunhee Chang - The primary objective in the proposed project is to determine the effects of food insecurity on the health of low-income, low-asset families during the 2003-2015 period. Specifically, using nationally representative longitudinal data (Panel Study of Income Dynamics), we investigate how adverse changes in individuals’ health conditions as well as changes in their out-of-pocket medical expenditures might increase the likelihood of food insecurity among these households, and whether such influences, if any, have been associated with the low asset holdings and inability to borrow. This study investigates whether liquidity constraint is a mediator that aggravates the association between health and food insecurity, and whether there is a difference between those that have health insurance and those that do not. SNAP participation will also be included in the analysis.
