Hunger--1973; Prepared by the Staff of the Select Committee on Nutrition and Human Needs, United States Senate.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Select Committee on Nutrition and Human Needs.
This report, prepared by the staff of the Select Committee on Nutrition and Human Needs of the U. S. Senate, is intended as a profile of the "half-full, half-empty plate which the Federal food programs represent to the nation's poor." The report focuses on various aspects of poverty and hunger such as: (1) poverty in the nation--the poverty line, poverty in central cities, the war on hunger, and poverty trends; (2) poverty and hunger at the county level--analysis methods and drawbacks in using county data, the 1973 hunger counties, poverty counties, failure-to-feed counties, and an analysis of regional differences; (3) the story behind the statistics--the situation in the South, outstanding counties, counties with highest and lowest participation levels, and State comparisons; and, (4) the administration of the food programs. Tables appended in illustration reflect data for hunger counties (1973); poverty counties; poverty trends; summary of poverty and hunger levels by States; analyses of regional differences by standard Federal regions, and the distribution of counties by participation rate; counties with no Federal food programs; failure-to-feed counties; counties with large Indian populations; counties feeding 10 percent or less of the poor; counties feeding 90 or more percent of the poor; and, other counties not covered by these categories. A bibliography on poverty and Federal food programs is appended. (RJ)
