Abstract

The purpose of this profile is to assess how public assistance program participation varies among disadvantaged children according to family structure, race-ethnicity, and nativity. Specifically, data from the 2010 American Community Survey 1-year estimates are used to examine poor children’s participation in two programs: Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as food stamps) and public cash assistance, including Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).
