The State of the States in Developmental Disabilities

The University of Colorado and the Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities have provided this page to provide information on nationwide longitudinal financial and programmatic trends in intellectual and developmental disabilities services. Established in 1982 to study the factors determining public spending for intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) services in the United States, the project now maintains a 39-year longitudinal record of revenue, spending, and programmatic trendsby state and generally for the country. Analysis of the database reveals the impact of federal and state fiscal policy over time. It also illustrates important service delivery trends within the states in the following categories: community living, public and private residential institutions, family support, supported employment, supported living, Medicaid waivers, and demographics, among other things.
