Abstract/Description

Food insecurity is defined as lacking sufficient food for all members of a given household. In the year 2016, it was estimated that approximately 15.6 million U.S households were insecure. The inability to access sufficient nutritious food not only affects the health of those dealing with food insecurity, but may also affect their ability to effectively manage their chronic conditions, such as diabetes, or may put them at greater risk of developing said chronic conditions. The purpose of this study is to assess the relationship between food insecurity and diabetes rates within California. All data and references used in this study are specific to California and its counties from the years 2000-2017. Confounders such as age, income level, and obesity were controlled for when establishing the outcome of the study.
