Sources:

Historical numbers of parent beneficiaries in force from In Force Table; future numbers of parent beneficiaries in force computed by applying ratio to number from 6 months earlier.

Historical ratio of number of parent beneficiaries to number from 6 months earlier computed by dividing corresponding numbers. Future ratios for parents projected by exponential regression on time, and modified by judgment.

Historical ratio of number of parent beneficiaries withheld to number in force computed by dividing corresponding numbers; future ratios projected based on historical trend and judgment.

Historical numbers withheld computed by subtracting number in current-payment status from number in force; future figures computed by applying applicable percentage to number in force.

Historical numbers in current-payment status from 1-A Table Current-Payment Supplement; future figures computed by subtracting number withheld from number in force.

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