Note: To calculate the percent of people in a certain state who receive federally administered SSI who are in a particular category out of the total number of people in the state who receive federally administered SSI, divide the number of people in the state who receive federally administered SSI in a particular category by the total number of people in the state who receive federally administered SSI. Example: Out of the total number of people in Nebraska who received federally administered SSI, calculate the percent who received federally administered SSI in the blind category. This calculation would be 239/21,221=.011 and .011x100=1.1%
