Administrative Data Research and Evaluation (ADARE) Alliance, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Study
Principal Investigator - Daniel G. Schroeder
Sponsor - U.S. Department of Agriculture Economic Research Service
Research Partner Subcontract - The Jacob France Institute-University of Baltimore, University of Chicago, University of Kentucky, Georgia State University
Project Duration - April 2010 – April 2015
Funding Amount - $218,500
The goals of the ADARE-SNAP study will be to analyze the interaction of SNAP caseload and recipient household composition dynamics aligned with receipt of Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits and participation in UI covered employment, and to demonstrate by state-specific approaches and accomplishments how analyses based on longitudinal files of linked confidential state administrative data files can be replicated in other states, and extended and refined by the partners in the consortium states.
The Ray Marshall Center will link longitudinal files of administrative records - SNAP administrative data, UI benefits data, and State UI wage records – to understand the sequencing of SNAP and UI applications, factors affecting the duration of SNAP and UI benefits, and the extent to which these patterns of outcomes are affected by the recession.
