Nord, Mark; Winicki, F. Joshua
Rural Conditions and Trends, v11 n2 p80-86 Dec 2000
The prevalence of hunger in rural households declined slightly from 1995 to 1998, and food insecurity rates stayed constant. Food insecurity was almost three times as prevalent among rural Blacks as among rural Whites. For rural Hispanics, the rate was about twice that of Whites. Food insecurity was higher in single-parent families than in any other household type. (TD)
