Question

The food stamp program has been part of a longterm public policy to ensure that lower-income families will be provided with adequate nutrition at lower cost. Some people argue that providing food income supplements will merely encourage lower-income people to purchase more expensive food, without any improvement in their diet. Perform an analysis to determine how the nutrition level of people receiving food stamps compares with the rest of the population. Is there evidence that people who receive food stamps have a higher-quality diet compared to the rest of the population? Is there evidence that they have a lower-quality diet? Is there evidence that people who receive food stamps spend more for their food compared to the rest of the population? Is there evidence that they spend less for their food? Based on your statistical analysis, what do you conclude about the food stamp program? You will do the analysis based first on the data from the first interview, creating subsets of the data file using daycode = 1, and a second time using data from the second interview, creating subsets of the data file using daycode = 2.
