In this report we build upon recent studies examining national participation rates for socioeconomic and demographic subgroups (Cunnyngham 2004) and rates for states among the entire eligible population (Castner and Schirm 2005). In Chapter II we focus on the derivation of participation rates for the working poor by state, discussing steps to overcome data limitations and small sample sizes, the estimation methods that we use, and the approach for measuring uncertainty in the estimates.

Reaching those in need: State Food Stamp participation rates in 2001

Individual Author: 
Schirm, Allen L.

This report is the latest in a series of publications presenting estimates of the percentage of eligible persons, by State, who participate in the Food Stamp Program. This issue presents food stamp participation rates for States in an average month in fiscal year 2001 and for the two previous fiscal years. These estimates differ slightly from those reported last year because of the change in the reference period from the month of September to the average month across the fiscal year, and improvements in data and methods.
