Mental retardation (128,000), cardiac (100,000), and orthopedic (93,800) were the most frequently mentioned. Of the total, around 103,000 were eligible for state aid. The planning organization and method of operation are outlined in detail, as well as the findings and recommendations. Many tables which provide data about the rehabilitation population, programs, and services are included in the report, and a selected bibliography is appended.
