Articles and reports: 82-003-X20000045796
In 1998/99, on behalf of Human Resources Development Canada, Statistics Canada asked questions about food insecurity on the National Population Health Survey (NPHS) in order to select respondents to participate in a Food Insecurity Supplement. The result was data from a nationally representative sample. This article uses those data to examine the extent and possible determinants of food insecurity, several related health outcomes, and the use of food banks, soup kitchens or other charitable agencies by people who were food insecure.
