2017 Annual Disability Statistics Supplement
Section 1: Population and Prevalence
This section presents statistics on the United States resident population, projected population, and people with disabilities. The prevalence statistics describe disability frequency by age, race, gender, and disability type. The principal source of these data is the U.S. Census Bureau, specifically the American Community Survey. For these tables, statistics for people with disabilities (disability status or disability type) are based on having responded ‘yes’ to a series of questions within the American Community Survey, see the glossary for more details.
