Data, Research & Issues


Explore these resources for background about older adults and people with disabilities living in the U.S.

The Data & Research section provides data and research about older adults and people with disabilities. These products were created by ACL or its grantees. Most of the information about older adults was compiled by ACL, using data we have collected as well as data from the U.S. Census and other sources. Most of our data and research about people with disabilities is found under the "NIDILRR Publications and Resources" section, which includes links to research conducted by ACL grantees.

The Issue Briefings and Other Reading section  includes reports on issues that affect older adults and/or people with disabilities. Most include evidence-based programs that could address the challenge and provide examples of how ACL programs and others can work together to address the challenge. On this page, you'll also find links to additional information and resources created and maintained by other organizations.
