U.S. Census Disability Census data

I came across a page on the Rolling rains report and some statistical information that was posted and derived from a fact sheet on disabilities compiled by the census bureau. This was completed by this federal agency in recognition of the seventh anniversary of the ADA.

Apparently eighteen percent of the general U.S. population has some form of disability to some degree. This translates, based on current population numbers to 51.2 million individuals with disabilities.

For the non-adult population, eleven percent of children who fall into the age range of six to fourteen have a disability. And, again, based on current population numbers, this comes out to four million children.
