Persons with Mental Retardation and Related Conditions in State-Operated Residential Facilities: Year Ending June 30, 1989. Project Report #33.
White, Carolyn C.; And Others
This report presents basic descriptive statistics on persons with mental retardation and related conditions in state-operated residential facilities on June 30, 1989. The report distinguishes among facilities by size, notably those with 15 or fewer residents and those with 16 or more residents. It also distinguishes between two general classes of state-operated facilities--those designated to be primarily or exclusively for persons with mental retardation and related conditions, and those designated primarily for persons with other disabilities. Part 1 presents population statistics for Fiscal Year 1989, for both small and large facilities. Part 2 presents statistics on the characteristics of residents of residential facilities with 16 or more residents. These statistics focus on age, level of mental retardation, functional characteristics, gender, new admissions, readmissions, discharges, and previous placement. Part 3 places Fiscal Year 1989 statistics within the longitudinal context of data gathered on state institution populations, resident movement, and costs of care since 1950. Appendices contain a copy of the survey form and procedures, assumptions, and limitations in longitudinal data presentation. (Includes 40 references.) (JDD)
