Poverty & Income Volatility

USDA's food and nutrition assistance programs help address the needs of low-income Americans.

ERS examines how income, income volatility, and participation in various food and nutrition assistance programs relate to:

  • economic well-being,
  • diet and nutrition,
  • food security and food spending,
  • child poverty, and
  • food accessibility and the food environment.
