Abstract Individuals with a disability
Minnesota and U.S., 2008-2016. Tabular data acquired from Minnesota Compass and appended to shapefile by NRRI.
Purpose The universe for the tabulations shown here is the civilian population living in households and non-institutional group quarters. People living in institutions are not included in these estimates. Some types of institutional group quarters populations have disability distributions that are different from the non-institutionalized population. For example, populations living in nursing homes and residential schools for people with disabilities are more likely to report having disabilities than the rest of the population. If we were to include populations living in institutions, rates of disability would be higher for all areas, but they would be disproportionately higher for areas containing certain types of institutions. For a discussion of the effect group quarters data have on estimates of disability status, see “Disability Status and the Characteristics of People in Group Quarters: A Brief Analysis of Disability Prevalence among the Civilian Noninstitutionalized and Total Populations in the American Community Survey”:
