The original version of this report contained errors in Table 5.H1. Some of the values for “Disabled-worker families” comprising a worker, wife, and either 1 child or 2 or more children were incorrect for 2004, 2006, and 2008. The corrected values now appear in this report.
The original print and web versions of this report contained an error in Table 6.B1. Data shown for columns “One-half or more of entitlement months” and “Less than one-half of entitlement months” were incorrectly transposed. Corrected data now appear in the web versions of this report.
The original print and web versions of this report contained an error in Table 8.B11.2. Data for 2008 reflected outpatient hospitals only, instead of all outpatient facilities. Corrected data for 2008 now appear in the web versions of this report.
The original print and web versions of this report contained an error in Table 3.E3. Footnote e, reading “Less than 0.05 percent,” was incorrect. The corrected footnote, “Less than 0.5 percent,” now appears in the web versions of this report.
The original print and web versions of this report contained an error in Table 2.A16. The bottom row of the table incorrectly implied a wage base increase for December 2009. Because there was no cost-of-living adjustment for December 2009, there was no wage base increase; therefore, that row should not have appeared. The incorrect row has been removed from the web versions of this report.

The Supplement is a major resource for data on our nation's social insurance and welfare programs. The majority of the statistical tables present information about programs administered by the Social Security Administration—the Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance program, known collectively as Social Security, and the Supplemental Security Income program. In addition, data are presented on the major health care programs—Medicare and Medicaid—and social insurance programs, including workers' compensation, unemployment insurance, temporary disability insurance, Black Lung benefits, and veterans' benefits. The Supplement also includes program summaries and legislative histories that help users of the data understand these programs. Please note that additional disability tables and statistics can be found in the SSI Annual Statistical Report and the Annual Statistical Report on the Social Security Disability Insurance Program.
The Supplement has been published annually since 1940. Decisions affecting the future of Social Security are facilitated by the availability of relevant data over a long period. The data provide a base for research, policy analysis, and proposals for changing the programs. In addition to meeting the Social Security Administration's information needs, the Supplement strengthens the agency's ability to respond to requests for program data from congressional committees, government agencies at all levels, and the research community.
The Supplement is prepared by Social Security Administration staff from various components throughout the agency and by many individuals from other federal agencies. I would like to express my thanks to them for their contributions.
