Detailed Objective: This project provides a comprehensive descriptive analysis on labor force participation of households with income under the food stamp threshold and on the jobs that food stamp recipients are likely to enter. The research will use both household data and employer data in order to bring together worker characteristics and job characteristics for analysis of worker skills and job requirements. Of particular interest in the project are the characteristics of low-skilled workers and of low-wage jobs. The agreement was amended in fiscal 2001 for $5,000.
