Abstract

This paper evaluates the impact of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) on participants’ levels of food insecurity. It analyzes four two-year panels of Current Population Survey (CPS) data from 2010 to 2014, estimating logistic models for low and very low food security in Year 2. Ultimately, the results suggest that SNAP has no significant effect on the food security status of participants.
