In this assignment you will work with state-level indicators to gain an understanding of how the food system is "measured" and how its structure and performance differs across states and time

Management

In this assignment you will work with state-level indicators to gain an understanding of how the food system is "measured" and how its structure and performance differs across states and time. In the 9.2 - The Future of the Food System module, we talked about measuring food system performance and the Institutes of Medicine Food Systems MetricsPreview the document showed how we might want to measure food system performance--but is that data readily available?

Here we can look at some data that is collected in the University of Minnesota State-Level Food System Indicators website (Links to an external site.).

  1. Choose 1 state's indicator sheet and Oregon's indicator sheet to compare their food systems in 2012.
  • What are a few of the most important differences between your state and Oregon?
  • How are they most similar?
  • Why might these similarities and differences exist and how do they affect overall food system performance? Focus on indicators that you think are meaningful, important and directly comparable – not just on the largest differences.

-OR-

2. Use Oregon's indicator sheet to compare internal changes in the state’s food system from 1997-2012.

  • How has the food system in Oregon changed differently over time?
  • Why might the food system in  Oregon have changed in different ways?
