The "2017 Disability Statistics Annual Report" presents statistics to address the following types of questions: (1) How many people with disabilities live in the United States; (2) What is the percentage of people with disabilities in different age groups; (3) What is the percentage of people with disabilities for different types of disability; (4) To what extent are people with disabilities employed; (5) What are the earnings for people with and without disabilities; (6) What is the poverty percentage for people with and without disabilities; and (7) Is disability status associated with percentages of smoking, obesity, and binge drinking? The "Annual Report" highlights state and trend data from national sources. A specific listing of source data for each figure is included in Appendix B. There is a great deal of variability in rates of people with disabilities by state and the "Annual Report" includes maps to highlight this information. A glossary of terms is included in Appendix C. The "Annual Report" charts complement the detailed tables of data which can be found in the "2017 Annual Disability Statistics Compendium" [For the "Compendium," see ED583160. For the "2017 Annual Disability Statistics" supplement, see ED583259. ]
