The goals of the study were to determine the current demographics of WIC participants ; examine the financial hardship, need for relief services, and extent of hunger resulting from the civil unrest of April 1992 ; look at the effects of the unrest on different ethnic groups ; determine the unmet need for WIC services ; and evaluate the State and local WIC responses to the unrest.
The 1,189 respondents were approximately 77 percent Latina, 20 percent African American, and 3 percent white.
