Relevant Population Characteristics for Disability Prevalence

Relevant Population Characteristics

As the Utah population ages, a greater percentage of Utahns will report experiencing a disability. Disability is also negatively correlated with education and income. This means as a person's income or education decrease, disability rates increase. This is likely partially due to disability limiting educational and income opportunities. Disability rates vary by ethnicity, with the Hispanic population being the more likely to report a disability in Utah, and race, with the American Indian/Alaskan Native population reporting disability at higher rates.
