ANNUAL STATISTICAL SUPPLEMENT 2012 [6 February 2013]
[full-text, 528 pages]
The Supplement is a major resource for data on our nation’s social insurance and welfare programs.
The majority of the statistical tables present information about programs administered by the Social
Security Administration—the Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance program, known collectively
as Social Security, and the Supplemental Security Income program. In addition, data are
presented on the major health care programs—Medicare and Medicaid—and social insurance programs,
including workers’ compensation, unemployment insurance, temporary disability insurance,
Black Lung benefits, and veterans’ benefits. The Supplement also includes program summaries and
legislative histories that help users of the data understand these programs. Please note that additional
disability tables and statistics can be found in the SSI Annual Statistical Report and the Annual
Statistical Report on the Social Security Disability Insurance Program.
The Supplement has been published annually since 1940. Decisions affecting the future of Social
Security are facilitated by the availability of relevant data over a long period. The data provide a base
for research, policy analysis, and proposals for changing the programs. In addition to meeting the
Social Security Administration’s information needs, the Supplement strengthens the agency’s ability
to respond to requests for program data from congressional committees, government agencies at all
levels, and the research community.
