This map of Georgia shows general rates of disability across the state at the county level. Disability rates are broken into four categories from 7.2 to 27.1%.

Overall, there are higher rates of disability in rural counties than urban ones. The counties with the lowest rates of disability (7.2 to 13.8%) are primarily located surrounding the large urban areas. Counties with the highest rates of disability, 18.4 to 27.1%, are mainly found scattered across the southern half of the state, with a few along the northern border.

In the upper corner is an inset map of the United States showing how overall general disability rates in Georgia compare to the rest of the country. Overall, general disability rates in Georgia are in the lowest category compared to the rest of the U.S.
