Sources:

Historical figures from SSA administrative records; future figures computed by adding awards to number in force at beginning of year, and applying termination rates.

Historical award rates computed by dividing the number of awards by the population age 18-20, less the number already in force; future rates projected based on historical trend and judgment.

Historical award figures from SSA administrative records; future figures computed by applying award rate to population age 18-20 less the number of student children already in force.

Historical termination figures estimated from SSA administrative records; future figures computed by applying termination rate to number in force.

Historical percent withheld figures computed by dividing number withheld by number in force; future figures projected based on historical trends.

Historical withheld figures estimated from SSA administrative records; future figures computed by applying withheld rate to number in force.

Historical in current-payment status figures from SSA administrative records; future figures computed by subtracting number withheld from number in force.

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