This map of the state of Ohio shows general rates of disability by county. Disability rates are broken into four levels: 7.5 to 13.1%, 13.2 to 15.0%, 15.1 to 17.0%, and 17.1 to 22.7%.

The five largest urban areas (Cleveland, Akron, Columbus, Dayton, and Cincinnati) are labeled on the map to show if there are any differences between disability rates in urban compared to rural areas. While most counties in Ohio are considered urban, there are higher rates of disability in rural counties than urban ones. Most of these counties are in the southern part of the state, south of Columbus and west of Cincinnati, along the West Virginia border. Of the major cities, Akron, Columbus, and Cincinnati are in counties with the lowest rates (7.5 to 13.1%), Cleveland is in a county with rates of 13.2 to 15.0%, and Dayton is in a county with rates of 15.1 to 17.0%.

In the upper corner there is an inset map of the United States showing how overall general disability rates in Ohio compare to other states. Overall, disability rates in Ohio are in the second-lowest category, which means Ohio has rates similar to many other states, including the surrounding states of Indiana, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, but lower rates of disability than Kentucky and West Virginia.
