Our maps use the American Community Survey and other national datasets to help us understand the disability experience and access to services across rural America. This work builds on past research to clarify working definitions of rural geography and develop resources to help people access data for their rural communities.
Geographic analyses are an essential component of our integrated research agenda as they lay the groundwork for our health, employment, and community living research.
Text descriptions and links to data files (where possible) are included within the map pages. Please contact us to request alternative formats, or if you have ideas for further development of accessibility features.
