NOTE: Social Security counts include disabled workers, disabled widow(er)s, and disabled adult children. SSI counts include recipients of
federal SSI, federally administered state supplementation, or both.
a. Averages are not obtained simply by dividing the total dollars by the number of recipients. Averages exclude payments made in the current
month for prior-month eligibility, such as back pay for new awards, so that large retroactive payments do not distort the averages.
