Characteristics of SNAP Program Households
CHARACTERISTICS OF SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM HOUSEHOLDS: FISCAL YEAR 2011
In fiscal year 2011, about 44.7 million people living in 21.1 million U.S. households participated in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), on average, per month. SNAP households are a diverse group. Because benefits are available to most low-income households with few resources, regardless of age, disability status, or family structure, participants represent a broad cross-section of the Nation’s
poor. This report provides information about the demographic and economic circumstances of SNAP households in fiscal year 2011.
