Definition: Percentage of households receiving CalFresh benefits, by race/ethnicity of household contact (e.g., in 2015, 1% of California households receiving CalFresh benefits had a multiracial household contact).
Data Source: California Dept. of Social Services, CalFresh Data Files (Oct. 2015).
Footnote: Data presented are for households participating in CalFresh during the month of July. Changes in recipients from year to year reflect both changes in the population and changes in eligibility requirements. Data for "Other" race/ethnicity include those "Reporting Race(s) Not Included Above," and may include some non-Hispanic multiracial people not included in one of the following categories: American Indian/Alaskan Native and White, Asian and White, Black/African American and White, or American Indian/Alaska Native and Black/African American. LNE (Low Number Event) refers to data that have been suppressed because there were fewer than 20 recipients in the racial/ethnic group. N/A means data are not available. Selected data for Placer County have also been suppressed because of inconsistent Hispanic/Other coding.
