This interactive map provides household SNAP participation rates at the county level in each state, based on American Community Survey 5-Year data (2012-2016). Counties are grouped into three categories: Metro, Small Town, and Rural. Use the buttons at the top to select or deselect the different categories. Scroll over a county to view household SNAP participation rates. Click on a county to zoom in, and click on that county again to zoom out to national scope.

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.
