This map of Wyoming shows general rates of disability across the state at the county level. Disability rates are broken into four categories, from 6.9 to 17.0%

The five largest urban areas (Cheyenne, Laramie, Rock Springs, Casper, and Gillette) 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 two lowest categories of 6.9 to 11.9% and 12.0 to 14.4% are mainly found in the counties surrounding each of the five largest urban areas and tend to occur in clusters across the state. The highest rates of 15.7 to 17.0% can be observed in several more rural counties in the state.

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