Disability and Health Report (click here)
A new report shows nearly one in five (17.8%) Utah adults is living with a disability. Adults with disabilities experience significant differences in their health behaviors and overall health compared with adults without disabilities. People with disabilities are more likely to engage in unhealthy behaviors and experience a higher incidence of chronic health conditions. Many of the health outcomes that persons with disabilities are more likely to experience either contribute to the top causes of death or are one of the leading causes of death in the U.S.
