The U.S. Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), selected Econometrica to leverage existing data, including misclassification and erroneous payment estimates, on qualifying Family Day Care Homes (FDCHs) operating under the FNS Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) as well as age misclassification rates to model and forecast error rates and error amounts for each fiscal year from 2015 through 2020. The empirical aging approach the Econometrica Team will create will be used in lieu of additional FDCH assessments.
