The Los Angeles County WIC Survey commenced in 2005 and is scheduled every three
years. Surveys were completed in 2005, 2008 and 2011.
The survey is conducted with a random sample of 5000 - 6000 Los angles County
WIC families, with the purpose of gathering health and behavioral information
that is not available in the WIC Administrative Data. These data sets are then
used for guiding services and planning efforts for low income families.
