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.
