Table 6 Dietary intake outcomes as related to HFP among food secure and food insecure households using nearest neighbors matching analysis. Each row indicates a separate matching analysis, where the HFP variable was used as a “treatment” while using six demographic controls (Female, Children in HH, BIPOC, Negative Job Change, Less $50 k, HH size) to conduct the matching. Negative coefficients indicate an association with lower intake
