This map of the United States depicts disability rates among males by county. Rates are broken into five categories ranging from 3.66% to 37.98%. Disability tends to be more predominant (19.38-37.98%) in the Appalachia region, especially along the borders of Kentucky, West Virginia, and Virginia. There are also some concentrated pockets of higher rates in southern Missouri, western Oklahoma, Arkansas, parts of New Mexico, southern Nevada, and Puerto Rico. Disability rates among males are lowest (3.66-19.37%) in southern California, regions of the Rocky Mountains and the Great Plains.This is part of the Disability in America Map Series.
The information used to create this map came from the American Community Survey. To browse the data these maps were created with, use our Disability Counts Data Finder tool.
