- This report reviews the literature on nonparticipation in the food stamp program, focusing on several specific questions: what are the principal reasons eligible persons or households do not participate; how do participation rates vary across different types of households and what are the reasons; and on what basis do eligible households make their decisions regarding participation and how might changes in the program structure influence those decisions?
