Distribution of rural employment growth by race : a case study by Victor J Oliveira( )

6 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whites benefit more than blacks from rural economic growth according to the findings of a 1982 survey of over 75,000 households in 10 rural counties in southern Georgia, selected to represent fast growing nonmetro areas with mixed manufacturing and commercial agriculture-based economies with substantial minority populations. From 1976 to 1981, a period of rapid employment growth, the percentage of white women with jobs in the study area increased, while the percentage of black men with jobs decreased. Among employed persons, whites increased their share of higher wage jobs. Persons who moved into the area obtained higher paying jobs than did other residents. These immigrants, most of whom were white, in general took larger shares of the new jobs than did continuous residents of both racial groups. Among nonworking adults in 1981, blacks were more likely than whites to report that they wanted to work. Nonworking blacks, more than nonworking whites, reported that they could not find jobs or that they could not meet hiring requirements. Low education levels, which may be reflected in low skill levels, prevented blacks from sharing more in increased job opportunities. Improving the education and job training of poor residents, especially blacks, is essential to distributing economic benefits more equally. (Author/NEC)

Recent trends and economic issues in the WIC infant formula rebate program by Victor J Oliveira( )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over half of all infant formula sold in the United States is purchased through the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). Typically, WIC State agencies obtain substantial discounts in the form of rebates from infant formula manufacturers for each can of formula purchased through the program. This analysis suggests that retail markup accounts for most of the cost to WIC of infant formula in most States. However, both it and net wholesale price have increased over time. The recent increase in these components coincides with the introduction of higher priced supplemented infant formulas. Conditions may change after the market adjusts to these new formulas

Innovative wic practices : profiles of 20 programs by Anne Gordon( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

WIC provides supplemental food, nutrition education, and social service referrals to low-income pregnant, breastfeeding, and postpartum women, infants, and children younger than age 5. WIC has come under increased scrutiny as it has expanded rapidly, and some have suggested new directions for the program. This study examines a range of innovative practices at 20 State or local WIC agencies. The study focuses on practices in three main areas: breastfeeding promotion and support (including peer counseling and programs for high-risk groups), nutrition and health education (including obesity prevention, preventive health care, and staff training), and service delivery (such as home and workplace visits). For each innovative program, the report provides background information and discusses the source of the innovation, key challenges, implementation lessons learned, evidence of its success, and the feasibility of replicating the practice. (Contains 5 tables.)
