This chapter concentrates on food poverty, especially with regard to poverty through insufficient household purchasing power. It uses a variety of statistical methods to attempt to determine the food poverty line, concentrating on a sample of older-aged households. It gives an empirical measurement of the extent to which particular households are, or are not, likely to fall into food poverty, which is surely something that policy makers must pay close attention to.

Keywords:   food poverty, household purchasing power, statistical methods, food poverty line
