Caulfield LE. Methodological challenges in performing targeting: assessing dietary risk for WIC participation and education. J Nutr. 2005;135(4):879-881.

The purpose of this paper was to summarize evaluations of indicators of dietary risk that determine eligibility, nutrition education, and nutrition counseling within the WIC Program. The author suggested the use of statistical procedures to better understand error rates and misclassifications at the population and individual levels, followed by the development and incorporation of new, more accurate indicators.
