Published: 2022
Project ID: UM22-01


The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically altered Americans’ health and work in ways that may trigger significant changes in the size and composition of disability program participation. In this project, we use Social Security Administration data to study trends in beneficiary deaths and primary reasons for impairment among disability beneficiary recipients to understand the changing composition of program participation.
