Research dissemination is a key component of ERS's food and nutrition assistance research program. ERS maintains three electronic databases to ensure that its broad spectrum of research is available to the public in an accessible format for both technical and nontechnical audiences.
- Research Reports & Articles Database—Over 1,000 peer-reviewed reports and articles are available on food and nutrition assistance-related research conducted by ERS researchers or funded through ERS. Search the database by:
- Title, lead author, topic, year of publication, data set analyzed, and
- Exact word(s) or phrases contained in the publication's citation
- RIDGE Project Summaries—All completed projects that were awarded grants through ERS's Research Innovation and Development Grants in Economics (RIDGE) Program are available. Search the database by title, keyword, research center, initial year of project, and investigator.
