This interactive map provides state-by-state data on the share of all households that are participating in SNAP, based on American Community Survey (ACS) 5-Year data (2015-2019), and the percentage of households participating in SNAP for metro, small town, and rural counties. You can scroll over a state to view these participation rates. The margin of error for each estimate is shown in parentheses.
Note: Works best in Chrome and Firefox.

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. Delaware, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and the District of Columbia have no counties defined as "small town" or "rural". Connecticut and Hawaii have no counties defined as "rural". Margins of error were calculated based on a 90% confidence level.
