#MapMonday today features American women with disabilities! These numbers are based on women’s responses to the US Census Bureau American Community Survey. Read more about the survey questions that determine the disability rates you see in the map.
Disability among females tends to be higher (19.03-35.62%) in Appalachia, particularly along the KY-WV border, as well as pockets in the South, and Puerto Rico. Disability among females tends to be less common (3.8-19.02%) in AK, southern CA, and regions of the Rocky Mountains and Great Plains. Rates range from 3.8%-35.62%. Map by RTC: Rural, July 2017.
