Welcome 

Welcome to the website for the State of the States in Developmental Disabilities Project, administered by the University of Colorado and funded in part by the Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.

Intellectual and Developmental Disabilties

We have recently updated our website. On this website you can now view longitudinal data on intellectual and developmental disabilities for fiscal years 1977-2011 by going to State Profiles. The new 2011 State Profiles have six pages of data. You can also Create a Chart based on state-by-state comparative data for fiscal year 2011 (see menu to the right).

All Disabilities

On the menu to the right, you can also access data for all disabilities. Data here are for intellectual/developmental disabilities, mental health and physical and sensory disabilities.

Also on our Website

The Publications link provides access to selected books and book chapters, journal articles, technical and brief reports, and testimony from the project. About Us presents a brief history of the study. Links offers access to related websites at the national, state and community level, including our state of Colorado.
