We obtained minimum stocking requirements for 50 states and the District of Columbia in 2017 from WIC Web pages or e-mail from the state WIC agency. We developed a coding protocol to compare minimum quantities and varieties required for 12 food and beverage categories and published the results in the American Journal of Public Health (2017). We are making the extracted text, coding protocol, and coded values of the state requirements available here as a resource to other researchers and practitioners.
