|Dataset Full Name||2014 Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) SSA Supplement|
|Dataset Acronym||SIPP SSA Supplement|
The Social Security Administration (SSA) utilizes data from the for various program purposes. However, SSA determined that the redesigned 2014 SIPP did not contain the information needed to support ongoing SSA programs. To address this lack of data, SSA funded a separate "follow-on" supplement survey of the 2014 SIPP respondents. Topics included in the Supplement primarily focus on the economic and social situation of people with disabilities and people in, or approaching, retirement. The supplement uses questions selected from previous SIPP panel topical modules regarding functional limitations and disability for adults and children, work disability, conditions causing the limitations, as well as income, retirement expectations, pensions, retirement accounts, and marital history.
The U.S. Census Bureau conducted the Social Security Administration Supplement (SSA Supplement) on behalf of the SSA. The sample consists of households that completed 2014 Wave 1 SIPP interviews. Data users can merge the 2014 SIPP data with the SSA Supplement data to examine the economic and social situation of older or disabled Americans.

|Unit of Observation||
|Data Collection Mode||
CATI (Computer Assisted Telephone Interviews)
|Data Collection Frequency||
One time supplement to the 2014 SIPP
|Strengths and Limitations|
Data comparable to 2008 SIPP topical modules.
Contains information regarding disabilities that affect activities for adults (18+), Children (0-17), and employment, age of onset, condition(s) causing the limitation, and need for assistance related to performing ADL/IADLs.
To access additional household and person level information the SSA supplement can be linked with the 2014 Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP).
The Supplement suffered from a low response rate (52.2%). The data must be merged with the 2014 SIPP to access the additional household and individual level data collected in the SIPP survey.
