U.S. Census and Disabled Adults: The 50 States and the District of Columbia.
This book analyzes and presents information from the 1980 Census of Population and Housing and offers state-by-state breakdowns of data on the disabled population. The 50 states and the District of Columbia are divided among 10 regions. Each state is described in terms of population size, proportions of the working-age population that are disabled, labor force participation rates among disabled adults, variations between disabled males and females on employment-related indices, interactions between race and disability, and the prevalence of transportation disabilities in the working-age and over-65 populations. Twenty figures illustrate proportions of working age population reporting one or more disabilities and labor force participation by working-age disabled persons for the states within each region. Thirteen tables, all broken down state-by-state, depict proportions disabled, labor force participation rates, proportions disabled and prevented from working, disabled males, disabled females, white disabled males, white disabled females, black disabled males, black disabled females, Hispanic disabled males, Hispanic disabled females, and transportation disabilities. The book is intended to assist rehabilitation, special education, vocational education, and employment personnel to plan better services for disabled individuals. (YLB)
