Thesis (M.S.)—University of Nebraska—Lincoln, 1973. Home Economics Area.
Many programs and projects have resulted from President Johnson’s declaration of “war on poverty” in 1964. However, only limited research has been directed toward establishing the problems, needs and practices of poverty groups, such as AFDC recipients—especially in the area of food shopping.
This study will be concerned with three variables in the AFDC recipient’s situation: length of tenure on AFDC, age at the birth of the first child, food shopping practices. It is hypothesized that there will be no significant differences in the economic aspects of food shopping between the three variables in the AFDC recipient’s situation, and that there will be no significant difference in the food stamp utilization between the three variables in the AFDC recipient’s situation.
