Prouty, Robert, Ed.; Lakin, K. Charlie, Ed.
This report from the ongoing National Residential Information Systems Project provides statistics on persons with mental retardation and related developmental disabilities (MR/DD) receiving residential services in the United States for the year ending June 30, 1994, as well as comparative statistics from earlier years. An executive summary highlights key findings. Section 1 presents statistics on state-operated residential services, in four chapters on: populations of state-operated residential settings in 1994; longitudinal trends in large state-operated residential facilities from 1950 to 1994; characteristics and movement of residents of large state facilities; and large state MR/DD facility closures, 1960-1998. Section 2 presents combined statistics on the total numbers of persons with MR and DD in both state and nonstate residential settings. Individual chapters address services provided by state and nonstate agencies in 1994; number of residential settings and residents by type of living arrangement; and changing patterns in residential service system from 1977-1994. Section 3 focuses on the utilization of the Medicaid program to sponsor long-term care services for persons with MR/DD. Chapters cover: background and summary of Medicaid long-term care programs; utilization of and expenditures for Medicaid institutional, home, and community-based services; status and changes in Intermediate Care Facilities--MR and their residents, and Medicaid community-supported living arrangements. (Contains 47 references, 60 tables, and 30 figures.) (DB)
