Records Keeper

You've heard about records getting mixed up.

But New Scientist magazine reports:
The average number of people wrongly declared dead every day in the US as a result of data input errors by Social Security staff: 35.
In the realm of 10,000 per year, suppose they're not erroneous mix-ups. Who is the clerk and what's in common among the people s/he's targeting?
