Note: "NA" indicates data are not applicable for the category.

Columns may not sum to the listed totals in "All Income Types" because some recipients may receive more than one type of income.

The income type "Asset Income" includes income received as rents, interest, dividends, and royalties.

To calculate the percent of people with a certain type of income who receive federally administered SSI in a particular age group out of the total number of people with the same type of income who receive federally administered SSI, divide the number of people with a certain income type who receive federally administered SSI in a particular age group by the total number of people with the income type. Example: Out of the total number of people with no other income who receive federally administered SSI, calculate the percent of people who receive federally administered SSI who are under 18. This calculation would be: 650,684/3,593,192= .181 and .181x100=18.1%
