This report provides estimates of the prevalence of food insecurity and hunger in U.S. households in 1998 and 1999 and trends since 1995 based on nationally representative data in the Food Security Supplement to the Current Population Survey (CPS). The report also provides estimates of the prevalence of hunger among children in food-insecure households (1995 through 1999) based on a child-specific scale. Prevalence rates are reported at the national level, along with breakdowns by household structure, race, ethnicity, income, metropolitan residence, and region.
