The 2000 U.S. Census:

This is the BarrierFreeChoices logo. Clicking on it will take you to our home page (which will open in a new window).The U.S. Census of 2000 reported a disability rate of more than TWENTY PERCENT, and growing. That’s more than ONE out of every FIVE Americans whose daily life is limited by a “serious” disability, right now — today!

Current projections indicate that the population level of those with disabilities severe enough to impair their activities will grow to about TWENTY-FIVE percent by the year 2020.

NOTE: The U.S. Census Bureau is currently updating their website to be in compliance with new Section 508 Federal Accessibility Standards. Consequently, many of their documents are in the process of being relocated.

During their transition, the link above will go directly to Census's Home Page. Follow the links from there to specific Census data that you wish to view.
