SOURCES: Social Security Administration, Disabled Beneficiaries and Dependents Master Beneficiary Record file and the Supplemental
Security Record (Characteristic Extract Record format), 100 percent data.
NOTES: 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.
-- = not available.
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.
