authored by
Adrian Vargas Lopez, Luca Secondi

Attaining a lower level of food insecurity is crucial for developing countries as its consequences spread wide and deep into specific communities. Covid-19 has magnified the adverse effects of several problems worldwide, including food security. This study investigates the Mexican Households' four food security thresholds using the 2018 and 2020 waves of the National Household Income and Expenditure Survey (ENIGH), which contains the Latin American and Caribbean Food Security Scale (ELCSA). In this research, we assess the differences in the four food security categories with reference to both individual and household variables as well as contextual factors.
