I recently learned about a great site for finding Social Security statistics. Lots of stuff to compare about state agencies, hearing offices (Social Security’s ODAR – the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review), and Administrative Law Judge approval and denial rates. Here is the link: http://www.ssdfacts.com/comparison.
With the new Social Security rule prohibiting disclosure of the name of the ALJ that will handle your hearing, it will be harder to make these statistics useful, but you can still get a good feel for how many people are getting denied and approved.
