The ACS asks a set of disability indicator questions to determine disability, if a respondent can answer “yes” to any disability question they are classified as having a disability. The data below are for all age groups.

People with Disabilities: Oklahoma
This map of the state of Oklahoma shows general rates of disability by county. Disability rates are broken into four levels: 8.6 to 14.7%, 14.8 to 18.4%, 18.5 to 21.1%, and 21.2 to 28.7%.
The five largest urban areas (Lawton, Enid, Oklahoma City, Norman, and Tulsa) are labeled on the map to show if there are any differences between disability rates in urban compared to rural areas. Rates are variable across the state. Counties with the highest rates (21.2 to 28.7%) are primarily rural, and located in the southeastern corner of the state. Rural counties in the panhandle and western side of the state have the lowest rates, as do the urban counties containing the major urban areas.
In the upper corner there is an inset map of the United States showing how overall general disability rates in Oklahoma compare to other states. Overall, disability rates in Oklahoma are in the second-highest category, which means Oklahoma has rates of disability higher than many other states, and has similarity to Arkansas, Mississippi, and Alabama.
