a. The measure of receipt of dividend income (included in asset income) is being changed to correct an error. The previous measured included all units owning stocks or mutual funds, which may or may not have issued dividends. The new measure includes only those receiving income from dividends. In 2002, 18 percent of units aged 65 or older received dividend income under the new methodology compared with 23 percent under the old methodology. This change has only a small effect on the percentage of units aged 65 or older receiving income from assets—55 percent under the new methodology compared with 56 percent under the old methodology.
b. Social Security includes retired-worker benefits, dependents' or survivors' benefits, disability benefits, transitionally insured benefits, or special age-72 benefits.
c. Includes federal, state, local, and military pensions.
d. Fewer than 75,000 weighted cases.
