This map explores the 2010-2014 ACS 5-year (table S1810) disability estimates by county type (OMB county classifications). For independent living difficulty the ACS asks because of a physical, mental, or emotional problem, does the respondent have difficulty doing errands alone such as visiting a doctor’s office or shopping. If they answer “yes” they are classified as having an independent living difficulty. This data is for ages 18 and up.
