This map of New Mexico shows general rates of disability across the state at the county level. Disability rates are broken into four categories, from 9.7% to 30.1%

The five largest urban areas (Las Cruces, Los Lunas, Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Farmington) are labeled to show if there are any differences between disability rates in urban vs rural areas. Disability rates tend to be higher in rural areas than urban ones. The lowest rates, of 9.7 to 15.3%, are mainly found in the counties surrounding each of the five largest urban areas and tend to occur in the northern and southern parts of the state. There are two large clusters of high disability rates of 22.4 to 30.1% in the rural counties in the northeastern and central-western parts of the state. There are also two clusters of the second highest category of 19.3 to 22.3% in the central and southwestern parts of the state, while an uneven pattern of disbursement can be observed of the second lowest category of 15.4 to 19.2%.

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