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>Amazon S3 runs on the world’s largest <a href="/about-aws/global-infrastructure/" target="_blank">global cloud infrastructure</a> and is designed from the ground up to deliver 99.999999999% of durability. Data in Amazon S3 Standard S3 Standard-IA and Amazon Glacier storage classes is automatically distributed across a minimum of three physical Availability Zones (AZs) that are typically miles apart within an AWS Region. The Amazon S3 One Zone-IA storage class stores data in a single AZ and is ideal for customers who want a lower cost option for infrequently accessed data and do not require the availability and resilience of S3 Standard storage. Amazon S3 can also automatically replicate data to any other AWS Region.</p>

<p>Amazon S3 offers the most flexible set of storage management and administration capabilities. Storage administrators can classify report and visualize data usage trends to reduce costs and improve service levels. Objects can be tagged with unique customizable metadata so customers can see and control storage consumption cost and security separately for each workload. The S3 Inventory feature delivers scheduled reports about objects and their metadata for maintenance compliance or analytics operations. S3 can also analyze object access patterns to build lifecycle policies that automate tiering deletion and retention. Since Amazon S3 works with AWS Lambda customers can log activities define alerts and invoke workflows all without managing any additional infrastructure.</p>
