The chart shows a forecast from an annual government report for the cost, in percent of GDP, of the federal government’s Social Security program for seniors through 2090. It shows the individual cost of the two major parts of Social Security: the Old Age and Survivors Insurance (OASI)program and the Disability Insurance (DI) program. See the Social Security Administration’s website for more details.
The numbers are obtained from the SSA’s Reports from the Trustees using numbers from two spreadsheets here. The overall cost of both programs as a percent of GDP is obtained from a table called in 2015 “OASDI and HI Annual Income, Cost, and Balance as a Percentage of GDP.” The breakdown in cost between OASI and DI was obtained form a table called in 2015 “Annual Income Rates, Cost Rates, and Balance.” The names of the tables change slightly from year to year.
