This study found likely sources of healthful, affordable to be limited in many tribal areas, a factor that may influence diet and food choices. Access to large grocery stores and supermarkets varied by tribal area. The largest share of AIAN tribal area populations are between 1 and 10 miles from a supermarket, defined as driving distance. Among the 6% of tribal area households without vehicles, most lived more than 1 mile from the nearest supermarket. The study also reports on measures of access for supermarkets authorized for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and outlets used by the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
