Whether you want to enhance your marketing strategy and capitalize on population trends, expand and retain your membership base, or maximize your program resources, Decision Demographics can help you develop practical, understandable, information-based solutions and implement effective, creative strategies.

We are demographers, market analysts, and communications and graphics experts, offering a range of customized research and planning services not found in other demographics firms. While our services are national in scope, we are a relatively small company. As a result, every project of every size receives personal, high-level attention.

We are pleased to announce the release of two ground-breaking reports from Decision Demographics on patterns of participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) from 2008 to 2012. Visit the USDA website for a synopsis.

Dynamics of SNAP Participation from 2008 to 2012 explores reasons that individuals enter and exit SNAP, how long they receive benefits, and whether they return to the program after exiting.

Determinants of SNAP Participation from 2008 to 2012 uses multivariate regression to isolate the impact of various demographic and economic factors associated with participation decisions while holding other factors constant.

Both reports use the U.S. Census Bureau’s Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) to better understand SNAP participation dynamics during this volatile economic period and how participation patterns have shifted from the mid-2000s.
