170. Medicaid--Selected Characteristics of Persons Covered

[In thousands, except percent (24,160 represents 24,160,000). Represents number of persons as of March of following year who were enrolled at any time in year shown.

The means-tested noncash benefits covered are food stamps, free or reduced-price school lunches, public or subsidized housing, and medicaid. There are general trends toward underestimation of noncash beneficiaries. For explanation of poverty level, see text, Section 14, Income.
