Disability and Health State Chartbook - 2006 Profiles of Health for Adults With Disabilities

What does this Chartbook tell you about each state?

There are two pages for each state or territory. The first page has an outline of the state that shows the estimated (rounded to the nearest thousand) number and percentage of adults in the state who have a disability. The precise estimate and the confidence interval are included in the data tables in Appendix B. It also shows the number and percentage of men and women who have a disability. Figures 1 and 2 show the percentage of people with a disability by age and race/ethnicity.

The second page contains graphs about the health of adults with a disability (in black bars on the charts) and adults without a disability (in gray bars on the charts) so that the health of the two groups can be compared. Figure 3 shows the percentages of adults who report their health to be excellent or very good compared with fair or poor. Figures 4a, 4b, 4c, and 4d show how people with and without disabilities compare on percentages of obesity, smoking, exercise, immunizations (for flu or pneumonia), health insurance, and having a regular doctor.
