Adults with disabilities experience significant health disparities compared to adults without disabilities. To improve the health of this population, state epidemiologists, researchers and public health professionals need access to accurate and timely data to inform their state’s health promotion activities. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) created Disability and Health Data System (DHDS) to provide quick and easy access to data on demographics and health information for adults with disabilities. DHDS has been updated with 2016 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) data, including for the first time hearing disability data, and an updated look and feel that makes it easy for users to find the information they need to help improve the health and well-being of adults with disabilities.
