About the Book

Objective. To explore associations among household food security (HFS), socio-economic characteristics, and urban agricultural (UA) activities.Conclusions. Key socio-economic and farm activity factors were associated with HFS in complex ways relevant for UA promotion.Methods. Cross-sectional survey on convenience sample of households (n=296) within randomly selected study zones. HFS constructed as the frequency and severity of food consumption related coping mechanisms. Multivariable regression analyses on all households and subsets engaged in farming activities.Results. Among all households (n=296), HFS was positively associated with primary caregiver's education (beta =1.42, 95% Confidence Interval (CI) 0.30, 2.55). Among households growing crops (n=209), asset score (beta =0.57, 95% CI 0.22, 0.93) and having > 1/4 acre of land (beta =1.98, 95% CI 0.83, 3.12) were positively associated with HFS. Significant interactions occurred between primary caregiver's education and sex of household head, and between asset score and size of land farmed.
