9780124058644: Food Security, Poverty, and Nutrition Policy Analysis: Statistical Methods and Applications

Food insecurity, the lack of access at all times to the food needed for an active and healthy life, continues to be a growing problem as populations increase while the world economy struggles. Formulating effective policies for addressing these issues requires thorough understanding of the empirical data and application of appropriate measurement and analysis of that information. Food Security, Poverty and Nutrition Policy Analysis, 2nd edition has been revised and updated to include hands-on examples and real-world case studies using the latest datasets, tools and methods. Providing a proven framework for developing applied policy analysis skills, this book is based on over 30 years of food and nutrition policy research at the International Food Policy Research Institute and has been used worldwide to impart the combined skills of statistical data analysis, computer literacy and their use in developing policy alternatives. This book provides core information in a format that provides not only the concept behind the method, but real-world applications giving the reader valuable, practical knowledge. It is updated to address the latest datasets and tools, including STATA software, the future of policy analysis. It includes a new chapter on program evaluation taking the reader from data analysis to policy development to post-implementation measurement. It identifies the proper analysis method, its application to available data and its importance in policy development using real-world scenarios. It features over 30 per cent new content and fully revised throughout.
