Fujiura, Glenn T.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v103 n3 p225-35 Nov 1998
This study estimates a 1991 population of 2.97 million Americans with mental retardation, with 2.63 million living outside formal long-term care systems. Observations suggest that families are the dominant source of support, many live in households headed by aging family members, and there are significant economic disparities between family subgroups.
