Food insecurity is the condition of not having regular access to enough nutritious food for a healthy life. In the U.S., having access to nutritious food requires that the food be physically present in the local food system (e.g. supermarkets; other food stores; markets; restaurants; and food vendors), and that households have sufficient financial resources to purchase it. Feeding America analyzed the relationship between food insecurity and indicators of food insecurity and child food insecurity (poverty, unemployment, median income, etc.) at the state level. The organization then uses the coefficient estimates from this analysis plus information on the same variables defined at the county level to generate estimated food insecurity rates for individuals or children at the county level.
