Who Gets Food Stamps? White People, Mostly

Two posts that make me think of spam, but for different reasons.

Sorry that I didn't go through you to justify what to post. Maybe you should volunteer to be the admin to police on what should be posted on current events and hot social topics.

Really deep thought....

Why would a reporter use USDA report screenshots with non-normalized data and dismiss the normalized data?

Why write an article that racially segments (group by on race) and then not normalize the data for the actual population of each respective race???


No peer reviewed journal would accept a study for publication as done here. Its an overt contradiction.......

If its about Total # of people, needn't mention any racial overtone unless you are going to do some proper statistical analysis with it and that would require normalizing the data against racial distribution of population.

Crude Figures -- just showing scale factors for comparison

40.2% Non-Hispanic Caucasian at 63% (2013 data ref est.) = 63.8

25.7% AA at 13.1% (2014 bloomberg) = 196 ...

10.3% Hispanic at 16.7% Hispanic (average of multiple sources) = 61.67

12.8% Unreported in USDA data is an interesting twist to the mystery. I would presume some % of this is mixed-race who don't know what to put.

I'm far less interested in the racial demographics and far more interested in knowing:

1. What % are 12-months or more on Aid who are : Able Bodied and Otherwise Lack Disabilities (ignore children temporarily)

a. of this group, what % have children under ten? average # of children?

b. what can we figure out about this group?

2. Same as above for longer periods of time.

3. What is likely fraud/misuse rate among the long-term SSDI market ?

In other words, is there a group abusing the program. Are there way to help reduce the long-term users.

It you are submitting a thesis statement, then you have to normalize the data.

It seems lately that most news articles are Editorials pretending to be news articles.

This is a double-edged sword...

As an Asian American (with the lowest poverty rates and not relying on government benefits),

I don't like to see my tax money going to feed the lazy (no matter what color they are).

That said, a good chunk of lazy Americans are also creating much American Dream opportunity

for hardworking immigrants.

So I accept feeding some lazy Americans in exchange for the great opportunity

the country is providing to those that are motivated.

That said, the chart is bit misleading...

Unless you pay attention, one could get the impression that 40.2% of whites are

receiving food stamps, which is totally wrong!!!

What it's saying is 40.2% of SNAP recipients are white,

but that's no brainer since white are the majority population in USA.

This means the biggest percentage within each ethnicity, African-Americans are the

the biggest recipients of food stamps.
