The maps below explore the American Community Survey 5-year (Table S1810) disability estimates. The ACS asks a set of disability indicator questions to determine disability, if a respondent can answer “yes” to any disability question they are classified as having a disability. The data below are for all age groups.

People with Disabilities: New Hampshire
This map of the state of New Hampshire shows general rates of disability by county. Disability rates are broken into four levels: 10.6 to 12.6%, 12.7 to 13.9%, 14.0 to 14.9%, and 15.0 to 20.9%.
The five largest urban areas (Concord, Manchester, Nashua, Dover—Rochester and Portsmouth) are labeled on the map to show if there are any differences between disability rates in urban compared to rural areas. Only the far eastern-central county is considered rural, with the rest being urban or mixed. The highest rates of disability are in eastern-central and northeastern counties. Of the five cities, Dover—Rochester, Portsmouth, Manchester and Nashua are in counties with the lowest rate, and Concord is in a county with the second lowest rate.
In the upper corner there is an inset map of the United States showing how overall general disability rates in New Hampshire compare to other states. Overall, disability rates in New Hampshire are in the lowest category, which means New Hampshire has lower rates of disability than many other states, and has similarity to much of the Midwest, California, New York and Texas.
