This map of New Jersey shows general rates of disability across the state at the county level. Disability rates are broken into four categories, from 8.0 to 15.5%.

The highest rates of disability, 13.5 to 15.5%, are in the southern part of the state, in the counties surrounding Villas, Atlantic City, and Vineland. The counties above those have slightly lower rates of 10.4 to 13.4%, and the counties surrounding Trenton and Twin Rivers/ Hightstown have rates of 9.2 to 10.3%. The rest of the state tends to have lower rates of 8.0 to 9.1%, though there are pockets of counties with higher rates.

In the upper corner of the map is an inset map of the United States showing how overall general disability rates in New Jersey compare to the rest of the United States. At the state level, disability rates in New Jersey are in the lowest category.
