Presented are a statistical overview of the total handicapped population; detailed statistics on the blind, deaf and hard of hearing, mentally retarded, and mentally ill; and statistics on the Federal-State vocational rehabilitation program. Statistics are from 1970 to 1975 and are usually provided both for the nation as a whole, by state, for different age groups, by degree of handicapping severity, and per cent being served. Vocational rehabilitation data include numbers and percent served overall and by state. Also included is a section on handicapped youth including statistics on the per cent receiving special educational services. A concluding section provides definitions of visually impaired, hearing impaired, speech impaired, crippled or other health impaired, mentally retarded, emotionally disturbed, and learning disabled.
