About 50 million people have a disability, such as hearing loss, mental disability, physical limitation, or vision loss. Improving the health of this large segment of the population is a central concern for public health. This Chartbook is the first in a series to present information about the health of people with disabilities by state and territory. It has three purposes: 1) to show that a large percentage of adults have a disability, 2) to show that the health of people with disabilities is not as good as that of the people without disabilities, and 3) to highlight areas in which public health systems can include more people with disabilities in their programs.
