Geography and Rural Disability Maps from RTC:Rural

Explore Geography and Rural Disability research and data through “Disability in America,” a new series of maps from RTC:Rural!

These maps are based on demographic data collected through the American Community Survey and cover disability rates, rates of particular types of disabilities, and other status of people with disabilities such as poverty and employment. They were created as part of the Geography and Rural Disability project and have implications for organizations and agencies working on disability topics nationwide. This work was funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research.

The Research and Training Center on Disability in Rural Communities (RTC:Rural) has studied disability patterns in America for 30 years. Researchers are available for technical assistance.
