View other issues of DD Data Brief

Brief description

A brief representing a departure from previous issues in the series, which have focused on the characteristics and needs of persons with intellectual or developmental disabilities (ID/DD) in the non-institutionalized U.S. population based on results from the National Health Interview Survey on Disability (NHIS-D) fielded in 1994-1995. This issue presents findings from the later years of the NHIS. It focuses on one of the issues in identifying and describing the characteristics of people with ID/DD in the 1997 NHIS and later, and describes response rate and proxy response issues that disproportionately affect individuals with ID/DD.
