QUESTION: How many people with disabilities are there in the United States?

ANSWER: According to the U. S. Census Bureau, about 49.7 million Americans have a disability, which includes people of all ages. About two-thirds of these individuals have a severe disability. Statistical information about persons with disabilities can be obtained from the U.S. Census Bureau web site, or by phone at 301-457-3242. Additional sources of disability statistics can be found online at DisabilityInfo.gov.

"How Many Americans Have a Disability?" by Mitchell P. LaPlante, June 1992
"A comprehensive estimate of the number of people with disabilities then is 36.1 million in 1990, or 14.5 percent of the 246 million people residing in the US."

The miracle is that anybody is healthy enough to work a 40 hour week! How
so many people can manage to work at all while dealing with their
illnesses is beyond me.

If you're in good health, be thankful,
