Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in Brantley, Glynn and McIntosh Counties: Analyzing the 2007 Recession using Aggregate-level Data
Georgia county-level SNAP participation
Rhodes, M. Taylor
Using publicly available aggregate-level data from 1997 to 2010, this report examines SNAP expenditures and participation rates for the US, the state of Georgia and the three counties within the Brunswick, Georgia Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA)-Brantley, Glynn and McIntosh. The purpose is two-fold: to investigate the impact of the 2007 recession on SNAP participation and to analyze longer-termed trends in SNAP participation with an emphasis on notable cross-regional comparisons.
