USDA's National Household Food Acquisition and Purchase Survey (FoodAPS) is the first nationally representative survey of U.S. households to collect unique and comprehensive data about household food purchases and acquisitions. Detailed information was collected about foods purchased or otherwise acquired for consumption at home and away from home, including foods acquired through food and nutrition assistance programs. The survey includes nationally representative data from 4,826 households, including Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) households, low-income households not participating in SNAP, and higher income households. For a more detailed description of the survey, see Background.
Public-use FoodAPS data are available for download in three file formats: SAS, STATA, and CSV. If the public-use files are not sufficient for the researchers' needs, see the Data Access page for instructions about how to gain access to restricted-use data.
The public-use files include: The household-level and individual-level interview files, the food-at-home (FAH) and food-away-from-home (FAFH) event files, the FAH and FAFH item files, data from the Meals and Snacks form, household access to FAFH outlets, and SNAP-authorized FAH retailers. All codebooks and a User's Guide, providing an overview of the survey and data sets as well as general notes about using the data, are also available (see Documentation below).
In an investment climate where passive management through index funds and ETFs continues to capture an increasing share of US investment dollars, are there new sources of data to help active management outperform market benchmarks? And as the availability of new alternative data products provide different perspectives on market activity, will asset managers embrace these new opportunities?
The top story around retail equity investing over the past decade has been the dramatic rise of passive management: according to Bank of America Merrill Lynch, as of May 2018, 45% of US equity assets were in passive investments, up from around 25% ten years ago.
While passive investing looks to remain popular for retail investors, given how it has lowered fees significantly while cost-conscious millennials become an increasing share of the investing public, the direction in active management strategies for institutional investors is to bolster the power of their quantitative and algorithmic models with data that can illuminate important trading trends.
The ability to achieve peak performance depends in no small part on the depth, breadth and quality of data an asset manager can access and utilise in its in-house trading models. With algorithms analysing data at millisecond speed, the inputs to these models are where firms can find their advantage.
An ideal data resource for buy-side asset managers and traders would be a kind of seismograph of the US equity markets revealing factors such as liquidity patterns, trends in short sales of securities, and trading concentrations across the leading broker dealers.
This data informs institutional investors looking to make large investments in a stock, or conversely to exit an existing position, about the number of brokers trading large enough volumes to deliver on their needs.
The power of these models can be further amplified by applying these technologies to process and analyse expansive, multi-perspective trading data like that described above. In an environment where every basis point of return is important, firms will also need to optimise their understanding of liquidity and limit the market impact of trading in and out of positions.
Advancements in data science and AI increasingly have created sophisticated trading models that will become more pervasive; the availability of accurate and consolidated sources of data will ultimately determine if they are effective in driving new insight on the kinetics of equity markets.
Mastery of the new sources of market data and the technologies that mine and package it can become a distinguishing value proposition for buy-side firms and help data-driven active strategies make a comeback. Clients will notice and ask for more.
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provides low-income families with a monthly benefit, delivered on an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card, which can be used to purchase food from authorized grocery stores and other food retailers. This data product provides access to two sets of data that provide information about State-level SNAP eligibility rules and administrative policies.
The SNAP Policy Database provides a central data source for information on State policy options in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The database includes information on State-level SNAP policies relating to eligibility criteria, recertification and reporting requirements, benefit issuance methods, availability of online applications, use of biometric technology (such as fingerprinting), and coordination with other low-income assistance programs. Data are provided for all 50 States and the District of Columbia for each month from January 1996 through December 2016. The information in this database can facilitate research on factors that influence SNAP participation and on SNAP's effects on a variety of outcomes, such as health and dietary intake. For more information, see About the SNAP Policy Database.
