The 2000 U.S. Census:
The U.S. Census of 2000 reported a disability rate of more than TWENTY PERCENT, and growing. Thats more than ONE out of every FIVE Americans whose daily life is limited by a serious disability, right now today!
Current projections indicate that the population level of those with disabilities severe enough to impair their activities will grow to about TWENTY-FIVE percent by the year 2020.
Note: The Census Bureau is currently updating their website to be in compliance with new Section 508 Federal Accessibility Standards. Consequently, many of their documents have been relocated.
During their transition, the link above will go directly to their Home Page. Follow the links from there to the Census data you wish to view.
