Annie Yu-An Chen, DDS, MS, Assistant Policy Researcher at RAND Corporation, discusses a new study that examined cyclical changes in American diet quality related to macroeconomic conditions. She and co-author Roland Sturm, PhD, Senior Economist at RAND Corporation, found that the American diet improved when unemployment peaked after the Great Recession, and then declined significantly.
