CDC Adds State Level Disability Site

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently created a public online database containing state-by-state, disability-specific information.  Named the “Disability and Health Data System,” the CDC says that the database can help individuals “better identify health and wellness opportunities for people with disabilities by allowing users to compare over 70 different health measures, as well as data on psychological distress and disability-associated health care expenditures.”  For instance, users can access an interactive map with tables showing how often arthritis causes a work limitation for adults in each state.

If you are facing a disability or simply want more information about disabling conditions, the database can be a helpful source of information.
