Note: To calculate the percent of people out of the total number of people who receive Federally administered SSI through a particular source who are in a certain category, divide the number of people who receive Federally administered SSI through a particular source who are in a certain category by the total number of people who receive Federally administered SSI who are in the same certain category and multiply the result by 100. Example: Calculate the percent out of the total number of people who are in the aged category who receive SSI through Federal payment only. This calculation would be: 666,671/1,289,339=.517 and .517x100=51.7%
