SOURCE: Social Security Administration, Master Beneficiary Record, 100 percent data.
NOTES: Race and ethnic designations are collected from the form SS-5 (Application for a Social Security Card). For dependents and survivor beneficiaries, race is assumed to be the same as that shown on the SS-5 for the wage earner on whose earnings record the benefit is based.
Through 2008, beneficiaries whose record indicated more than one race were classified as "other." Beginning with 2009, these beneficiaries are classified as persons of unknown race.
a. Includes 387,781 persons of unknown race.
b. Includes Asians and Pacific Islanders, American Indians and Alaska Natives, and a subset of the total number of beneficiaries of Hispanic origin. The distribution of beneficiaries among those three groups is not available.

SOURCE: Social Security Administration, Master Beneficiary Record, 100 percent data.
NOTES: Race and ethnic designations are collected from the form SS-5 (Application for a Social Security Card). For dependents and survivor beneficiaries, race is assumed to be the same as that shown on the SS-5 for the wage earner on whose earnings record the benefit is based.
Through 2008, beneficiaries whose record indicated more than one race were classified as "other." Beginning with 2009, these beneficiaries are classified as persons of unknown race.
a. Includes 191,599 persons of unknown race.
b. Includes Asians and Pacific Islanders, American Indians and Alaska Natives, and a subset of the total number of beneficiaries of Hispanic origin. The distribution of beneficiaries among those three groups is not available.

SOURCE: Social Security Administration, Master Beneficiary Record, 100 percent data.
NOTES: Race and ethnic designations are collected from the form SS-5 (Application for a Social Security Card). For dependents and survivor beneficiaries, race is assumed to be the same as that shown on the SS-5 for the wage earner on whose earnings record the benefit is based.
Through 2008, beneficiaries whose record indicated more than one race were classified as "other." Beginning with 2009, these beneficiaries are classified as persons of unknown race.
a. Includes 103,054 persons of unknown race.
b. Includes Asians and Pacific Islanders, American Indians and Alaska Natives, and a subset of the total number of beneficiaries of Hispanic origin. The distribution of beneficiaries among those three groups is not available.

SOURCE: Social Security Administration, Master Beneficiary Record, 100 percent data.
NOTES: Race and ethnic designations are collected from the form SS-5 (Application for a Social Security Card). For dependents and survivor beneficiaries, race is assumed to be the same as that shown on the SS-5 for the wage earner on whose earnings record the benefit is based.
Through 2008, beneficiaries whose record indicated more than one race were classified as "other." Beginning with 2009, these beneficiaries are classified as persons of unknown race.
a. Includes 17,867 persons of unknown race.
b. Includes Asians and Pacific Islanders, American Indians and Alaska Natives, and a subset of the total number of beneficiaries of Hispanic origin. The distribution of beneficiaries among those three groups is not available.

SOURCE: Social Security Administration, Master Beneficiary Record, 100 percent data.
NOTES: Race and ethnic designations are collected from the form SS-5 (Application for a Social Security Card). For dependents and survivor beneficiaries, race is assumed to be the same as that shown on the SS-5 for the wage earner on whose earnings record the benefit is based.
Through 2008, beneficiaries whose record indicated more than one race were classified as "other." Beginning with 2009, these beneficiaries are classified as persons of unknown race.
a. Includes 144,702 persons of unknown race.
b. Includes Asians and Pacific Islanders, American Indians and Alaska Natives, and a subset of the total number of beneficiaries of Hispanic origin. The distribution of beneficiaries among those three groups is not available.
