by the U.S. by the U.S. Census Bureau. Annual survey of 3 million addresses in the U.S. Objectives Provide federal, state and local government agencies with information Replaced the replaced the decennial Census long form. Provides timely annual data on housing, social and economic statistics that can be compared across states, communities and population groups. 6 ACS Disability Questions ACS disability questions used to identify the population with disability. Six questions-new in 2008. These questions are now used by the Current Population Survey (CPS), and decennial Census and HHS Healthy People 2020 recommendation for inclusion in all future population health surveys. 7

Is this person deaf or does he/she have serious difficulty hearing? Visual Disability (asked of all ages) 16b. Is this person blind or does he/she have serious difficulty seeing even when wearing glasses? Cognitive Disability (asked of persons age 5 or older) 17a. Because of a physical, mental or emotional condition does this person have difficulty concentration, remembering, or making decisions? 8 Source: American Community Survey; Slide courtesy of Cornell University Disability Statistics Center

Defining Disability-continued Ambulatory disability (asked of persons ages 5 or older) 17b. Does this person have serious difficulty walking or climbing stairs?

Tracks employment status. Conducted by the Census Bureau for BLS. Monthly, periodic and annual sample survey of 50,000 households in the U.S. Before 2008 used question about disability-related work limitations. Decennial Census 10 Source: American Community Survey; Slide courtesy of Cornell University Disability Statistics Center 2010 Census Special EEO File Available December 31,2012 Disability data will be released as part of the EEO file. This will include disability data by age, race, sex,

education, income, detailed occupation, employment, unemployment. Geographic data available for counties, SMSAs and the U.S. 11 Source: American Community Survey; Slide courtesy of Cornell University Disability Statistics Center Other National Disability Data Sourcescontinued. National Health Interview Survey (NHIS)Focuses on aspects of health status of the population and use of health services. Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) Survey conducted by Census Provides key data about source and amount of income, program participation. Measures the effectiveness of existing federal, state and local programs, estimates future costs and coverage of government programs, such as food stamps. Provides measures of economic well being. Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS)

Objective of BRFSS is to collect uniform, state specific data on preventive health practices and risk behaviors that are linked to chronic diseases, injuries, and preventable infectious diseases that affect the adult population. 12 Source: American Community Survey; Slide courtesy of Cornell University Disability Statistics Center Questions and Cautions When Using Disability Data What is the purpose of the survey and how does it define disability? What level of data does the survey provide? Use caution when comparing data among different surveys. Be careful when comparing data from one year to the next. 13 Disability Prevalence Rate in Population Ages 5+: 2010

24 Source: American Community Survey; Slide courtesy of Cornell University Disability Statistics Center Summary of Findings Presented Here Disability prevalence rates vary by geography, age, gender, race, and ethnicity. Individuals with disabilities are Increasing in number; Include persons of all race/ethnic groups. Less likely to have a college degree; When employed, likely to earn less than persons without disabilities; and More likely to live in poverty. 25 Improved Disability Data Challenges include: A constrained funding environmentkeeping what we have; Avoiding duplication of research efforts; and Developing and implementing a new national survey on disability Promising efforts include:

Revised ACS questions and inclusion of individuals living in Group Quarters; and New CPS questions on disability. 26 My Contact Information Doris Werwie, Ph.D. National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services U.S. Department of Education Phone: 202-245-6564 E-mail: [email protected] 27
