Dynamics of the Food Environment in the United States

State level data on food environment variables for the period 2000 through 2013, gathered from the Food Environment Atlas and various other government sources are used to model a panel VAR to capture specific state-level fixed and random effects. The set of food environment variables can be broadly classified into four major categories: food insecurity, food assistance, poverty and obesity. This will help explain interactions of innovations (new information) from food environment variables, which in turn help generate policy prescriptions dealing with the food environment in the United States
