Sources:

Uninsured female population age 60-64 computed by subtracting insured female population age 60-64 (shown earlier) from population age 60-64 (from the Office of the Chief Actuary).

Historical ratio to uninsured female population computed by dividing sum of aged wife and uninsured widow beneficiaries in force under age 65 by uninsured female population age 60-64; future ratios based on historical pattern and judgment.

Historical numbers of aged wife and uninsured widow beneficiaries in force from SSA administrative records; future figures computed by applying applicable percentage to uninsured female population.

Historical ratio of aged wife beneficiaries to aged wife and uninsured widow beneficiaries, combined, computed by dividing corresponding numbers; future ratios projected based on historical pattern and judgment.

Future numbers of aged wife beneficiaries computed by applying applicable percentage to aged wife and uninsured widow beneficiaries, combined.

Future numbers of aged uninsured widow beneficiaries computed by subtracting number of aged wife beneficiaries from aged wife and uninsured widow beneficiaries, combined.

Note: Future estimates based on 2001 Trustees Report intermediate set of assumptions.
