In-Home and Residential Long-Term Supports and Services for Persons with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities: Status and Trends through 2013
A report describing the status of, and trends in, long-term supports and services for people with intellectual or developmental disabilities in the U.S. on June 30, 2013. It is based on an annual nationwide survey of directors of state intellectual and developmental disability agencies and large state residential facilities conducted by the National Residential Information Systems Project (RISP), now in its 30th year at the Research and Training Center on Community Living. The report presents data on individualized and congregate settings, utilization and expenditures for Medicaid's Home and Community-Based Waiver (HCBS) and Medicaid's Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities program, national longitudinal trends in the utilization of and expenditures for long-term services and supports, and services and supports provided in state-operated facilities serving 16 or more people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The RISP data are available in several formats. The annual reports can be downloaded in PDF format. The online version of the latest report contains short reports that highlight specific findings from the overall report; they are available online in an interactive, data visualization format that allows users to quickly access state data and presents comparisons between states in a visual format.
