What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the percentage of the population that are limited in any activities because of physical, mental, or emotional problems.
Why this is important: 
People with a disability have difficulties performing activities due to a physical, mental, or emotional condition. The extent to which a person is limited by a disability is heavily dependent on the social and physical environment in which he or she lives. Without sufficient accommodations, people with disabilities may have difficulties living independently or fulfilling work responsibilities. Several federal agencies use information on the size, distribution, and needs of the disabled population in order to develop policies, distribute funds, and develop programs for individuals with disabilities.
Technical Note:  The regional value is compared to the national value.
American Community Survey single year estimates are available for geographic areas with populations of 65,000 or more.
