RDRC — Research Projects
Social Security is the foundation of retirement and disability income support in the United States. Three key programs (Old Age and Survivors Insurance, Social Security Disability Insurance, and Supplemental Security Income) operate in an environment of changing demographics, population health, longevity, labor markets, economic conditions, government finances, household finances, and related public and private programs.
RDRC affiliated researchers, from universities throughout the United States as well as from abroad, conduct research with an emphasis on five key areas :
- Enrollment Trends and Determinants
- Measuring Sources of Income and Adequacy
- Labor Force Participation
- Program Operations
- Related Programs and Program Interactions
