Map of Physical Disabilities

This map reveals the concentrated rate of physical disabilities in the South Eastern United States. Among the 50 states, the physical disability rate was highest in West Virginia. Nearly all of the states that are on the higher end of the physical disability spectrum are located in the coal-mining region. As a result, the health repercussions of coal miners and other vocations in the region appear noticeably on this map.

The top 5 states ranking are as follows:

  1. West Virginia – 40.72
  2. Kentucky – 40.27
  3. Arkansas – 36.92
  4. Mississippi – 35.22
  5. Alabama – 34.34
