This map of Illinois shows general rates of disability across the state at the county level. Disability rates are broken into four categories, from 7.2 to 26.5%.

The five largest urban areas (Rockford, Round Lake Beach- McHenry-Grayslake, Chicago, Peoria, and Springfield) are labeled to show if there are any differences between disability rates in urban vs rural areas. Overall, there are higher rates of disability in rural counties than urban ones. There also tend to be higher rates of disability in the southern half of the state. Counties with the highest rates, of 17.2 to 26.5%, are found mainly in the rural southeastern part of the state. Counties with the lowest rates, of 7.2 to 12.5%, are found in the urban areas around Chicago and Peoria.

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