This report is the latest in a series of annual reports providing information about the demographic and economic circumstances of households and individuals participating in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) at both the national and state level. Because SNAP is available to most low-income households, participants represent a broad cross section of the Nation's poor. This report covers Fiscal Year 2016. Annual quality control data used to produce this report can be found using the link below.
