Social Security Maps Updated to Include 2020 Data

Dec 21, 2021
Summary: The Social Security maps show average Social Security benefits, numbers of retirees, and shares of disabled workers at the state, county, Zip Code, or congressional district level. The data are from the Social Security Administration, Office of Retirement and Disability Policy and have been updated to include 2020 data. Map users can explore the geographic distribution of each data series and can then view a graph of the time series data by selecting a specific geography. Also explore maps depicting the geographic distribution of Medicare benefits, from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, and the distribution of income, from the Internal Revenue Service, on PERC’s Maps page.
