Notes
1. The establishment of the Social Security system in the 1930s appears to have resulted in overstatement of age by some in order to qualify.

2. In the mid-1990s, HCFA has instituted some reconciliation procedure with the Social Security Administration to check mortality above age 95.

3. The data base is being extended beyond 1993, but this is the most recent data used in this analysis.
