This report presents the latest trends in Food Stamp Program (FSP) participation rates. It adds one more year of information, 1995, to the series of reports on FSP participation rates based on March Current Population Survey (CPS) data for eligibles and FSP administrative data for participants. Participation rates are calculated as the percentage of the total eligible population that participate in the FSP. Although the report focuses on changes in rates from 1988 to 1995, it also examines longer-term trends beginning with 1976. Trends in aggregate rates and trends for subgroups of the eligible population are summarized in the text that follows and described fully in the body of this report. (author abstract)
