Empirical Bayes Shrinkage Estimates of State Food Stamp Participation Rates for 1994-1998
AbstractPresents estimates that measure the need for the Food Stamp Program and the program's effectiveness in each state, by year from 1994 to 1998. Need for the program is based on estimated number of people eligible for food stamps; effectiveness is based on estimated food stamp participation rates, state by state.
