Notes: The data are drawn from the Supplemental Security Record, the principal administrative computer file for the SSI program. To avoid disclosure of the reason for individuals' eligibility, data on eligibility categories are suppressed for counties with less than 15 recipients or where all recipients are in the same category. The amount of payments are not shown for counties with less than four recipients. Suppressed data are included in the State and national totals.
