Ranking State Services

In The Politics of Autism, I discuss state services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

On September 20, United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) issued the 2016 Case for Inclusion, an annual report and interactive website tracking state-by-state community living standards for Americans with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD). The Case for Inclusion examines data  for all 50 states and the District of Columbia, ranking each on key indicators.

The best:
  1. Arizona
  2. Vermont
  3. New Hampshire
  4. Michigan
  5. Hawaii
  6. California
  7. District of Columbia
  8. Missouri
  9. South Dakota
  10. Maryland
The worst:
42. Idaho
43. Wyoming
44. Oklahoma
45. Iowa
46. North Dakota
47. Illinois
48. Montana
49. Arkansas
50. Texas
