A Multidimensional View of Food Environment Impact on Consumption and Food Security

While previous research has consistently identified neighborhoods in the United States that suffer from poor access to grocery stores, identify what, if any, effect this has on consumption and health outcomes has resulted in mixed findings. This may be due to two weakensses: first, a lack of consistent theoretical framework and second, a use of methods that do not account for the spatial nature of the data. The purpose of this paper is to address these weakensses by utilizing the household production model to capture multiple dimensions of access, and investigate possible spatial correlation in a dataset collected in the Dan River Region in southern Virginia.
