New commentary in Public Health Agency of Canada journal

May 23, 2018

Tarasuk et al. review the existing state of household food insecurity measurement in Canada and propose changes to close critical gaps in the monitoring and reporting of food insecurity. Key recommendations of the commentary include: reporting the total number of individuals living in food insecure households; recognizing and measuring marginal food insecurity; making local level food insecurity data more available; and mandating the assessment of household food insecurity on all cycles of the Canadian Community Health Survey.
