The data dashboards and tools linked below provide access to state and county level disability data as well as data on individuals who are institutionalized in correctional facilities (i.e. prisons and jails) and nursing homes. All dashboards contain filters allowing users to focus specifically on metropolitan or nonmetropolitan counties at the national or state level.
This dashboard consists of a set of interactive state and county maps displaying counts of individuals living in institutional settings, specifically correctional facilities and nursing homes. The data in this dashboard represent the entire institutionalized population, not just people with disabilities and come from the 2020 Decennial Census. Data on people with disabilities who are in institutions are not available at the county level.
