Data and Research

Ensuring older adults and people with disabilities have the opportunities to live independently and fully participate in their communities requires robust, accurate information about both populations. The following resources are available through data collection and research projects funded by ACL, and data compilation performed by ACL.

Information about older adults

Information about people with disabilities

Visit our Research & Development page in the Programs section to learn about NIDILRR's research projects. NIDILRR's mission is to generate new knowledge and promote its effective use to improve the abilities of people with disabilities to perform activities of their choice in the communities; and to expand society's capacity to provide full opportunities and accommodations for citizens with disabilities.
