About the National Data
Baseline: 63.5 percent of students with disabilities aged 6 to 21 years spent at least 80 percent of their time in regular education programs in the 2017-18 school year
Target: 73.3 percent
Data come from the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Data System, administered by the Department of Education, Office of Special Education. Data are based on counts of the number of students with disabilities as specified in the numerator and denominator definitions. Data are aggregated by states and territories for a total of 57 entries (50 states plus District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, Virgin Islands, Northern Mariana Islands, and Bureau of Indian Affairs). Thus, specific demographic data (i.e., gender, race-ethnicity, etc.) are unavailable.
1. Because Healthy People 2030 objectives have a desired direction (e.g., increase or decrease), the confidence level of a one-sided prediction interval can be used as an indication of how likely a target will be to achieve based on the historical data and fitted trend.
