This interactive map provides state-by-state data on the share of all households that are participating in SNAP, based on American Community Survey (ACS) 5-Year data (2012-2016), and the percentage of households participating in SNAP for metro, small town, and rural counties. You can scroll over a state to view these participation rates. The margin of error for each estimate is shown in parentheses.
Note: Works best in Chrome and Firefox.

Notes: "Metro counties" are those contained within Metropolitan Statistical Areas, as delineated by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB); each of which contains at least one Census Bureau-delineated urbanized area of 50,000 or more people. "Small town counties" are those contained within Micropolitan Statistical Areas, as delineated by OMB, each containing at least one Census Bureau-delineated urban cluster of between 10,000 and 50,000 people. "Rural counties" consist of non-metropolitan and non-micropolitan areas. Margins of error were calculated based on a 90% confidence level.
