This map of Vermont shows general rates of disability across the state at the county level. Disability rates are broken into four categories, from 11.0 to 19.8%.

The five largest urban areas (Burlington, Barre-Montpelier, Rutland, Bennington, and Brattleboro) 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. The lowest rates, of 11.0 to 12.4%, are found in the counties around Burlington and Barre-Montpelier. The highest rates, of 16.7 to 19.8%, are found in only three counties, in the northeast and southwest corners of the state. The eastern side of the state has rates of primarily 15.9 to 16.6%.

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