The United States Department of Agriculture administers the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). This program, previously known as food stamps, is designed to help guarantee
low-income households and individuals access to a basic level of nutrition.
In Parker County and throughout the country, SNAP households are a major focus of the American Community Survey (ACS), conducted each year by the U.S. Census Bureau. A household in Parker County is a group of people living in a house, apartment, or other housing unit. Households may be family households or non-family households.
Unlike the Census, which is an exact count of people and households every ten years, ACS statistics are estimated based on a representative survey sample. For locations with populations under 60,000, the ACS is only available in 5-year estimates, rather than single-year periods. The 5-year estimates provide greater geographical granularity but a less granular time period. Note that the data in this article is presented as counts of households, not of individuals.
