Nutrition Assistance Program Participation and Cost Database

$79 / year

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is the new name for the federal Food Stamp Program. This dataset contains participation and cost data for SNAP. The data is furthered divided by annual, state, and monthly levels categorized by persons participating, households participating, benefits provided, average monthly benefits per person and average monthly benefits per household.

Complexity

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as the Food Stamp Program, provides food-purchasing assistance for low- and no-income people living in the U.S. It is a federal aid program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, under the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), though benefits are distributed by each U.S. state’s Division of Social Services or Children and Family Services.

SNAP benefits cost $74.1 billion in fiscal year 2014 and supplied roughly 46.5 million Americans with an average of $125.35 for each person per month in food assistance. It is the largest nutrition program of the fifteen administered by FNS and is a critical component of the federal social safety net for low-income Americans.

The amount of SNAP benefits received by a household depends on the household’s size, income, and expenses. For most of its history, the program used paper-denominated “stamps” or coupons – worth US$1 (brown), $5 (blue), and $10 (green) – bound into booklets of various denominations, to be torn out individually and used in single-use exchange. Because of their 1:1 value ration with actual currency, the coupons were printed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Their rectangular shape resembled a U.S. dollar bill (although about one-half the size), including intaglio printing on high-quality paper with watermarks. In the late 1990s, the Food Stamp Program was revamped, with some states phasing out actual stamps in favor of a specialized debit card system known as Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT), provided by private contractors. EBT has been implemented in all states since June 2004. Each month, SNAP food stamp benefits are directly deposited into the household’s EBT card account. Households may use EBT to pay for food at supermarkets, convenience stores, and other food retailers, including certain farmers’ markets.

<p>Scale your storage resources up and down to meet fluctuating demands without upfront investments or resource procurement cycles. Amazon S3 is designed for 99.999999999% (11 9’s) of data durability because it automatically creates and stores copies of all S3 objects across multiple systems. This means your data is available when needed and protected against failures errors and threats.<br /> <a href="/s3/faqs/#Durability_.26_Data_Protection" target="_blank">Learn about S3 data durability &raquo;</a></p>

<div class="lb-rtxt">
<p>Save costs without sacrificing performance by storing data across the <b>S3 Storage Classes</b> which support different data access levels at corresponding rates. You can use <b>S3 Storage Class Analysis</b> to discover data that should move to a lower-cost storage class based on access patterns and configure an <b>S3 Lifecycle</b> policy to execute the transfer. You can also store data with changing or unknown access patterns in <b>S3 Intelligent-Tiering</b> which tiers objects based on changing access patterns and automatically delivers cost savings.<br /> <a href="/s3/storage-classes/">Learn more about the S3 Storage Classes &raquo;</a></p>

<p>Store your data in Amazon S3 and secure it from unauthorized access with encryption features and access management tools. You can also use <b>Amazon Macie</b> to identify sensitive data stored in your S3 buckets and detect irregular access requests. Amazon S3 maintains compliance programs such as PCI-DSS HIPAA/HITECH FedRAMP EU Data Protection Directive and FISMA to help you meet regulatory requirements.

These S3 Storage Classes retain objects long-term at the lowest rates. Simply create an S3 Lifecycle policy to archive objects throughout their lifecycles or upload objects directly to the archival storage classes. With <b>S3 Object Lock</b> you can apply retention dates to objects to protect them from deletions and meet compliance requirements. Unlike tape libraries S3 Glacier lets you restore archived objects in as little as one minute for expedited retrievals and 3-5 hours for standard retrievals. Bulk data restores from S3 Glacier and all restores from S3 Glacier Deep Archive are completed within 12 hours.<a href="/glacier/"><br /> Learn more about archiving &raquo;</a></p>

<p>Create a seamless connection between on-premises applications and Amazon S3 with <b>AWS Storage Gateway</b> in order to reduce your data center footprint and leverage the scale reliability and durability of AWS as well as AWS’ innovative machine learning and analytics capabilities. You can also automate data transfers between on-premises storage and Amazon S3 by using <b>AWS DataSync</b> which can transfer data at speeds up to 10 times faster than open-source tools. Another way to enable a hybrid cloud storage environment is to work with a gateway provider from the APN. You can also transfer files directly into and out of Amazon S3 with<b> AWS Transfer for SFTP </b>— a fully managed service that enables secure file exchanges with third parties.<br /> Learn more about <a href="/storagegateway/">hybrid storage</a> <a href="/datasync/">AWS DataSync</a> and <a href="/sftp/">AWS Transfer for SFTP &raquo;</a>&nbsp;<br /> </p>
