Poverty and Disability: At the Intersection of Place and Policy
Researchers from the NIDILRR-funded Research and Training Center on Disability in Rural Communities (RTC: Rural) recently published a post, Poverty and Disability: At the Intersection of Place and Policy, for the National Disability Institute Blog. The post explores the relationship between disability and poverty, including such factors as the labor market, healthcare costs, and housing influences. The post includes graphics depicting poverty rates among people with disabilities by county, disability status, and county type. The post also includes a link to the Rural Disability Resource Library, an online collection developed specifically for rural people with disabilities, their families, and service providers.
