Title: ACS - People with Disabilities

Abstract: Individuals with a disability in Minnesota, 2013-2017. Tabular data acquired from Minnesota Compass and appended to shapefile by NRRI.

Purpose: While some disabilities can be managed with minor accommodations, others have profound health and social impacts. More severe disabilities can impact everything from employment and self-care, to mobility and memory. Disabilities become more common with age. Communities need to recognize the scope and complexity of older adults' difficulties to adequately plan for and respond to their needs. Spouses and others who serve as caregivers also require support, resources and respite from providing care to maintain their own health. Proper health care, social support, and services that help those with disabilities age with dignity can mitigate some of the challenges associated with disabilities. Communities and family members can also help older adults to maximize their independence and employ their talents and abilities.
