Digest of Data on Persons with Disabilities.
Czajka, John L.
The document compiles published and unpublished statistical data on persons with disabilities. Its intent is to bring together a variety of data on the disabled population and provide guidance on its use. Fifty-two tables are grouped into five major sections (subtopics in parentheses): (1) prevalence of disabilities (impairments and chronic conditions, activity limitations, severity of limitations); (2) characteristics of the disabled population (living arrangements, employment, income, health care utilization); (3) federal programs (special education, other disability programs); (4) individual impairments and chronic conditions--comparative data; and (5) state level data. Appended material includes a list of primary data sources used in the report. (CL)
