New Infographic Focuses on Participation in Government Programs

More American Households Rely on Government Benefits ProgramParticipation in government benefits programs, both means-tested and non-means-tested, grew during the recent downturn. A new "Measuring America" infographic, "Changes in Use of Government Programs from 2008 to 2011," uses results from the Survey of Income and Program Participation to show changes over that period in households that receive benefits, as well as participation in specific non-means tested and means-tested programs.
