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.

People with Disabilities: Oregon
This map of Oregon shows general rates of disability across the state at the county level. Disability rates are broken into four categories, from 9.9 to 23.4%.
The five largest cities (Portland, Salem, Eugene, Bend, and Medford) are labeled on the map to show if there are any differences between disability rates in urban vs rural areas. The map shows quite a bit of variation in disability rates across the state. The highest rates, of 21.3 to 23.4%, occur in rural counties in the central, southern, and coastal regions of the state. The lowest rates, of 9.9 to 14.8%, tend to occur in more urban areas like the counties containing three of the five most populous cities (Portland, Salem, and Bend).
In the upper corner of the map is an inset map of the United States showing how overall general disability rates in Oregon compare to the rest of the United States. Overall, general disability rates in Oregon are 12.8 to 14.6%, which is the second-highest category.
