This study analyzes the relationship between participating in the Food Stamp Program (FSP) and being diagnosed with diabetes. Data for this study was based on participant's response to the 2011-2012 California Health Interview Survey (CHIS). This study predicted that participation in the FSP would increase the likelihood for participants to develop diabetes type-2. The variables under investigation in this study consisted of participation in the FSP, previously being diagnosed with diabetes, ability to afford and eat balanced meals, socioeconomic status (SES), and consumption rates of soda and fast food. The results of this study showed statistical significance between FSP participation and being diagnosed with diabetes, ability to afford and eat balanced meals and being part of the lower SES, as well as FSP participation and consumption rate of soda and fast food.
