Trustees Reports- 1996
1996 OASDI Trustees Report
The 1996 Annual Report of the Board of Trustees of the Federal Old-Age and Survivors Insurance and Disability Insurance Trust Funds was issued on June 5, 1996 as a printed document of over 200 pages. The Trustees Report has three main sections, with eight or nine subsections in each section. There are 67 tables and 13 charts. We split the report by subsection, and further split the tables and charts into separate files. Each of the subsections, tables, and charts has an entry in the table of contents, list of tables, or list of charts, respectively. In addition, to assist lay readers, we have added hypertext links from the main report documents to the appropriate spots in the Trustees Report Glossary (Appendix G).
The hypertext markup language used to create documents has a method to create tables, but it is not yet available in all readers. Therefore, we have created our tables using a simple tabular design. This may add some inconvenience when reading the tables; on the other hand, the lack of markup symbols in the tables will make it easier to download the figures in the tables and incorporate them in other work.
