This page is for researchers--everyone from students doing a school project
to professional researchers doing major studies of social policy.
It contains three basic sources of data:
Research published by the Food & Nutrition Service’s Office
of Analysis, Nutrition & Evaluation;
Data on participation produced by FNS’s Program Information
Data on maximum allotments, income limits and allowable deductions.
If you’re a researcher, you won’t want to limit yourself to this
page. A good place to start for an introduction to SNAP is the Applicants
and Recipients page. Also, at some time, you will probably want
to look at Governments, to see
what directions we’re giving to the people who administer the Program.
