This map of Missouri shows general rates of disability across the state at the county level. Disability rates are broken into four categories, from 9.8 to 29.4%

The five largest urban areas (Kansas City, Lee’s Summit, Columbia, St. Louis, and Springfield) are labeled to show if there are any differences between disability rates in urban vs rural areas. Disability rates tend to be higher in rural areas than urban ones. The lowest rates, of 9.8 to 14.6%, are mainly found in the counties surrounding each of the five largest urban areas, and tend to be found more in the northern half of the state. There is a large area of high disability rates (20.7 to 29.4%) in the rural counties in the southeastern corner of the state. Many other counties in the southern half of the state have rates of 17.2 to 20.6%, the second-highest category.

In the upper corner is an inset map of the United States showing how overall general disability rates in Missouri compare to the rest of the country. Overall, general disability rates in Missouri are in the second-lowest category (out of four) compared to the rest of the U.S.
