Abstract

This policy brief explains that people who live in rural America rely more heavily on the federal Food Stamp Program than do residents of urban areas. The brief presents a demographic picture of rural food stamp recipients, including information on income, race, age, and family size. It also compares data for rural and urban recipients.
