Annual Statistical Supplement, 2018

Social Welfare and the Economy

Interprogram Data

We are suspending publication of Tables 3.C7a, 3.C7b, and 3.C8 for the 2018 edition of the Annual Statistical Supplement as we evaluate the adequacy of their data source, the Annual Social and Economic Supplement (also known as the March Supplement) of the Current Population Survey (CPS). Recent research suggests that there may be some issues with the measurement of certain sources of income reported in the CPS. We are dedicated to publishing the most accurate statistics possible so we are conducting a thorough review of available data sources for these publications and will publish findings from this review. For more information, see Bee, Adam, and Joshua W. Mitchell. 2017. “Do Older Americans Have More Income Than We Think?SEHSD Working Paper No. 2017-39. Washington, DC: U.S. Census Bureau.

NOTE: Totals do not necessarily equal the sum of rounded components.
a. Employment taxes depend on tax rates and, for the Old-Age and Survivors Insurance and Disability Insurance Trust Funds, wage bases (because of taxable maximums). The taxable maximum for Medicare Hospital Insurance (HI) was eliminated in 1994. Employer and employee contributions differ by estimated amounts of employee tax overpayments and by employee tax on tips.
b. Between -$500,000 and $500,000.
c. Beginning in July 1973, aged ineligibles may voluntarily enroll for HI.
d. Includes premiums paid on behalf of eligibles by state governments under "buy-in" arrangements.

SOURCES: Social Security Administration, Master Beneficiary Record and Supplemental Security Record, 100 percent data.
NOTES: Beginning with data for 2011, OASDI beneficiaries who are entitled to both a primary benefit (based on one's own earnings record) and a secondary benefit (based on a spouse's earnings record) are counted only once in this table.
OASDI = Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance.
a. Includes persons receiving OASDI, SSI, or both.
b. The number of OASDI disabled adult child beneficiaries aged 18–64 also receiving SSI was estimated on the basis of the number of such beneficiaries aged 18 or older for the same year and on the comparative size of the two groups at the end of 1988.
c. December data for OASDI disabled beneficiaries also receiving SSI were not available. Instead, the average of the September 1989 and March 1990 numbers was used.
