Note: To calculate the percent of people in a certain state who receive federally administered SSI who are in a particular age group 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 age group by the total number of people in the state who receive federally administered SSI. Example: Out of the total number of people in Washington who received federally administered SSI, calculate the percent who received federally administered SSI in the under 18 age group. This calculation would be 11,244/100,761=.112 and .112x100=11.2%
