Abstract

This map of the United States depicts poverty rates among people with disabilities by county. Rates are broken into five categories ranging from 0.0% to 70.23%. Poverty is more prevalent (30.16-70.23%) among people with disabilities in the South, especially in eastern Kentucky and select counties in western Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and South Dakota. Poverty is generally lower (0.0-30.15%) among people with disabilities in the Great Plains and Midwestern states and throughout the Rocky Mountain region.

This map 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.
