State of the States in Developmental Disabilities

Established in 1982 to investigate the determinants of public spending for intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) services in the United States, the project maintains a 37-year longitudinal record of revenue, spending, and programmatic trends in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the United States as a whole. Analysis of the rich detail of the data base reveals the impact over time of federal and state fiscal policy, and illustrates important service delivery trends in the states in community living, public and private residential institutions, family support, supported employment, supported living, Medicaid Waivers, demographics, and related areas. The website features very informative ‘State Profiles’ that offers data from the study in a visual format.
