A New Approach to Reduction of Errors in the Food Stamp Program


Abstract:
In 1982, the federal government penalized the state $3.5 million for exceeding the national average in the rate of errors in processing food stamps. In cooperation with the Department of Human Resources and the staff of the Research Triangle Institute a new plan was drafted to eliminate these errors and avoid future penalties. The plan involves identifying high risk areas with problematic households more prone to error.
