People with Disabilities: South Carolina
This map of South Carolina shows general rates of disability across the state at the county level. Disability rates are broken into four categories, from 10.9 to 27.0%.
The five largest cities (Spartanburg, Greenville, Mauldin-Simpsonville, Columbia, and Charleston-North Charleston) are labeled on the map to show if there are any differences between disability rates in urban vs rural areas. The map shows a fair amount of variability of disability rates across the state. The lowest rates, of 10.9 to 14.6%, typically occur in clusters surrounding the five most populous cities, with some exceptions. All counties with the highest rates, of 20.4 to 27.0%, occur further from these major metropolitan areas.
In the upper corner of the map is an inset map of the United States showing how overall general disability rates in South Carolina compare to the rest of the United States. Overall, general disability rates in South Carolina are 12.8 to 14.6%, which is the second-lowest category.
