The annual Social Security Administration publication OASDI Beneficiaries by State and County (2013) is available.
Quoting from the preface:
“This annual publication focuses on the Social Security beneficiary population—people receiving Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) benefits—at the local level. It presents basic program data on the number and type of beneficiaries and the amount of benefits paid in each state and county. It also shows the numbers of men and women aged 65 or older receiving benefits.”
In your state or county, how many people receive Social Security monthly benefits?
How is that divided between Social Security retirement, survivors or disability benefits?
How much money does that bring in to your local economy?

As of December 2013, 18.3 percent of the entire United States population received a Social Security retirement, survivors or disability benefit. Including family members, this was approximately 70 percent retirement benefits, 11 percent survivors, and 19 percent disability.
In North Dakota, 17.1 percent of the population received Social Security benefits, 17.5 percent in Minnesota, 19.3 percent in South Dakota and 20.5 percent in Montana. What about where you live?
When looking up your state or county information, keep in mind that benefit amounts are shown in thousands of dollars.
