Note: Except for data by age, figures are for life expectancy free of disability at birth.

The term disability describes people at risk of a limitation in their ability to fully participate in society. People are identified as having a disability through a set of 6 standardized questions developed for the American Community Survey (ACS). These questions ask if a person has difficulty in any of these 6 domains of functioning:

  • Hearing
  • Seeing
  • Concentrating
  • Remembering or making decisions
  • Walking or climbing stairs
  • Dressing or bathing
  • Doing errands alone
