Starting in 2011, Map the Meal Gap, a national study conducted by Feeding America, has provided critical information about the nature and extent of hunger in communities across the U.S. This year’s data comes from 2016.
Methodology: Feeding America begins by analyzing the relationship between food insecurity and indicators of food insecurity and child food insecurity (poverty, unemployment, homeownership, etc.) at the state level. They then use 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.
