Economic Research on the Joint Contributions of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Unemployment Insurance (UI) to the Nation's Social Safety Net
04/25/2010 - 04/24/2015
Researchers analyzed the interaction of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) caseloads and unemployment insurance (UI) benefits with participation in covered employment. Household composition dynamics of the caseloads were examined and placed in the context of the business cycle. The project demonstrated how analyses based on linked administrative data files could be replicated in other states.
