The highest rates of 21.4 to 25.9% are observed in one county that extends from the central part of the state to the southern border.

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