National Map Series

This is a set of national maps that shows information about disability. The maps show the rates of disability for every county in the United States and Puerto Rico.

There are maps for many topics, including veterans, poverty, and employment. There are also maps for different kinds of disability including hearing, seeing, walking, cognitive, self-care and independent living.

These maps were created from information collected through the American Community Survey.
