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 age group, divide the number of people who receive Federally administered SSI through a particular source who are in a certain age group by the total number of people who receive Federally administered SSI who are in the same age group and multiply the result by 100. Example: Calculate the percent out of the total number of people who are under 18 who receive SSI through Federal payment only. This calculation would be: 607,415/846,784=.717 and .717x100= 71.7%
