FOOD INSECURITY AND TYPES OF DISABILITY

One of the factors that affect food security status of the household is the presence of the disabled individual in the household. Existing studies show that types of disability of adults in the household are associated with food insecurity. Using data from 2011-2014 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), we found that severity of vision, physical, and mental disability as well as the multiplicity of the household head’s disability have a significant effect on food insecurity.
