With almost 1 in 5 Americans living with a disability (19% - 56.7M) and half of those categorized as severe, being able to pinpoint where residents are living with disabilities is critical in creating inclusive, more accessible programs. These disabilities have far-reaching impacts on how parks, street crossings, linear trails, and many community assets need to be developed and maintained. This analysis can help answer questions like: “What sort of facilities and programming is a community likely to need?”, “How many residents near a particular park have a disability or have special needs?”, and “Which parts of a community have the highest need for accessibility improvements?”
