Note: This figure uses annual Agriculture Department (USDA) estimates of eligible and participating individuals. USDA revised the methodology for these estimates starting with the 2010 estimates, so the 2007, 2009, and 2013 estimates are not directly comparable. The revised methdology does not change the underlying trends.
