2012 Disability Status Report

Employment and Disability Institute, Cornell University

The Annual Disability Status Reports provide policy makers, disability advocates, reporters, and the public with a summary of the most recent demographic and economic statistics on the non-institutionalized population with disabilities. They contain information on the population size and disability prevalence for various demographic subpopulations, as well as statistics related to employment, earnings, household income, veterans' service-connected disability and health insurance.  Comparisons are made to people without disabilities and across disability types.  Disability Status Reports and other statistics are available for the United States overall, each state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico at

The Status Reports primarily look at the working-age population because the employment gap between people with and without disabilities is a major focus of government programs and advocacy efforts. Employment is also a key factor in the social integration and economic self-sufficiency of working-age people with disabilities.
