About this dataset
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) reports the number and rate (per 1,000) of SNAP cases and recipients.
The data indicate the number of individuals receiving assistance from SNAP. Formerly known as Food Stamps, SNAP helps low income families to purchase food. SNAP recipients are measured by individuals. SNAP cases are measured by "assistance units" which are roughly comparable to households and can include multiple recipients who prepare and eat food together. Connecticut Department of Social Services collects monthly and annual data and reports it annually. CTdata.org carries annual data.
