Percent of total eligible population who participated in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
Persons are eligible for participation in SNAP (formerly the Food Stamp Program) if they meet certain resource and income tests. Not everyone who is eligible for food stamps elects to take them. More detailed information about eligibility is here: http://www.fns.usda.gov/snap/applicant_recipients/eligibility.htm#employment. SNAP eligibility rules were applied to the Current Population Survey (CPS) to estimate the total eligible population in each state.
