Food Stamps and Welfare Recipients

Alabama Kids Profile

Massachusetts     1993 1995 1997 1999 2000 2001 2002
Welfare / Food Stamps 75% 70% 63% 50% 40% 44% 44%

Although welfare recipients have declined, the number receiving food stamps has not declined as quickly. This suggests that although the number of families receiving welfare has declined, their condition of poverty has not.
