Notes: Reliance data are calculated at the family-income level for the entire population ages 65+, which includes beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries. Family income includes income from all family members, including those in related subfamilies.

With the 2014 CPS income data, released in 2015, the U.S. Census Bureau fully implemented a redesign of survey methodology for various income and spending questions. Therefore, any changes between the 2013 and 2014 results for median income, income receipt rates, and poverty rates should be interpreted with caution. For more information, see https://www.census.gov/content/dam/Census/library/publications/2015/demo/p60-252.pdf, pages 59-63.
