Description
  • Abstract

    The New Beneficiary Survey collected information from recent recipients of Social Security benefits and their spouses and from persons aged 65 and older who were entitled to Medicare benefits but had not yet received Social Security benefits. These data cover demographic characteristics of the respondent, spouse, and other persons in the household, as well as employment history, health information, and current income of the respondent and spouse for the three months preceding the interview. Survey responses were linked with data on benefit status from the Social Security Administration's Master Beneficiary Record. Imputation was used to compensate for nonresponse in a set of income-related items. In addition, data are provided in Part 2 on covered earnings and quarters from 1951-1985. This information is averaged in two-year blocks to preserve confidentiality.

Sampled Universe
Living, noninstitutionalized population of the continental United States from the Social Security Administration's Master Benefit Record who were new recipients of Social Security benefits (first payment in mid-1980 through mid-1981) or who had established entitlement to Medicare and were eligible for, but had not received, Social Security benefits as of July 1982.
Sampling
The New Beneficiary Survey is a cross-sectional household survey using randomly selected samples. The survey is divided into 15 analytic subdomains by age, sex, and benefit status. Separate sample sizes were specified for each subdomain. The sample was adapted to the frame of the Institute for Survey Research/Mathematica Policy Research National Sample of Primary Sampling Units to achieve nationally representative cluster samples.
Collection Mode
  • Data from Part 2 can be linked to Part 1 via the NBS case number in the first field.
