Abstract

The study evaluates whether low food security and very low food security were significantly associated with past month serious psychological distress (SPD) among Hispanic adults living in poverty. Authors used 2007, 2009, and 2011–2012 California Health Interview data for 10,966 Hispanics whose income was below 200% of the federal poverty level. Authors found nearly 30 percent of the study population had low food security and 13% had very low food security. Low food security and very low food security were associated with 1.99 and 4.43 odds of past month SPD, respectively, and perceived low neighborhood safety was related to 1.47 odds of past month SPD.
