The source is an agency in PA so I don't know if this is a state phenomenon there or if this is US data

    What is the budget for food stamps? Can anyone tell where this money is coming, when it was voted on by any one???

    trying to follow the links back to the chart on the Penn site. No can do. this is the kind of thing that drives me nuts. like-minded sites start copying "stuff" that ends up being no attributable. This is booger blogging.

    A simple search of the (typically governmentally-shitty) PA website reveals these data

    The chart above reshuffles the absolute numbers into % increases.

    At first I thought the report seemed to say that 150% of their population was on food stamps. Then I realized this must be showing %changes rather than total amounts. Without numbers for where you are starting from this information is of limited value.
