1 Race and ethnic designations are collected from the form SS-5 (Application for a Social Security Card). For dependents and survivor beneficiaries, race is assumed to be
the same as that shown on the SS-5 for the wage earner on whose earnings record the benefit is based.
2 “Total” includes 184,340 persons of unknown race. In years prior to 1993, persons of unknown race were included with “White.”
3 The “Other” classification includes Asians and Pacific Islanders, American Indians and Alaskan Natives, and a subset of the total number of beneficiaries of Hispanic origin.
The distribution of beneficiaries between these three groups is not available.
4 Provisions for Railroad Retirement beneficiaries are described in the section Social Security (Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance).

See footnotes at end of table.
