Many households in the United States continue to rely on food stamp/SNAP benefits to purchase food for their families. This report presents data on food stamp/SNAP receipt for the past 12 months at the national and state levels based on the 2010 and 2011 American Community Survey (ACS). The data in this report are for households, not individuals. If any person living at the sample address at the time of the interview received food stamps/SNAP, the household is included in the count. Respondents were asked to report any spells of food stamp/SNAP receipt for the past 12 months.

For the 2010 ACS questionnaire, we added an instruction including the new program name.
